You’ve probably seen that moving video of a woman on the roof of her car during the flood in UERM, Sta. Mesa Manila.
Less-talked about, however, is the man on the same video hanging onto a coconut tree while the cars around him swirl and get drowned.
And there’s one gripping photo of what seems to be a dead body of a woman in Marikina still lying on the street a day after the typhoon hit their area.
These are just some of the unfortunate stories brought by Typhoon Ondoy which devastated parts of Metro Manila, particularly, Marikina, Pasig, and Rizal.
Some more photos of the Ondoy (international name: Ketsana) in the link below.

After my wife and I were able to evacuate my son and his yaya from a 3 story apartment building a house away from our 1 story house in Provident village that got fully submerged, I went back to provident village to give some food to Stacy, our golden retriever, who got stranded on the roof of a 2 story apartment behind out house(we already rescued her yesterday). On my way out of Provident village, I saw a woman crying all by herself while leaning on the wall and felt sorry for her until I realized that she was actually standing beside a body lying on the sidewalk. I really can’t describe what I felt as I walked past by her… sigh.

@Jay, good to hear you and your family are safe. It must be heart-wrenching seeing the images above happen in real-life. I hope those affected can immediately recover.
Thanks James. I hope and pray everyone affected will be able to pickup the pieces and recover, not just in our village but all over.
Hanggang ngayon po umiiyak ako sa habag sa mga taong napinsala sa Pilipinas. Noon pa po akong Sabado nanginginig at hindi makarecover sa pagkashock sa nangyari sa ating bayan. Sana po, wala ng bagyong pumasok pa. Nakakaawa ang mga kababayan natin sa Pilipinas.
Hindi ko po maubos maisip kung paano sila makakarecover sa pangyayaring iyan. Panalangin na lang po ang maitutulong ko sa lahat ng naapektuhan.
grabe talaga ng Bagyong Ondoy..akalain nyong ang dali tumaas ng tubig…grabe talga..!! kawawa ang mga taong namatay sa bagyo….sana hindi na ma.ulit yun..
*sigh* thats the only reaction that I have right now. I dont know how to feel while watching the news and some pictures on the net. I feel bad on what happen. I did give a donation but I still felt there’s something lacking….. kawawa talaga mga kapatid natin sa luzon 🙁 im from cebu but i can feel their needs. I just pray that God will comfort them and cover them with His mercies. I will continue to pray for all of you….
I was wondering who i could contact regarding the typhoon pictures? If it would be possible to purchase a photo for an advertisement.
im from cebu,even we’re not affected in floods naiiyak ako sa Nakikita ko sa news kung gaano napinsala ng bagyong ondoy ang pilipinas, sana wala nang ganong mangyayari sa atin, all this are trials and i hope that people who encounter the floods they can recover and survive, dont lose hope and faith in GOD, he always our side inspite of many trials and problems we’ve encounter. Iniisip ko yung mga tao napinsala ng bagyong ondoy na nawalan ng tirahan,damit, pagkain at halos lahat nawala sana marami parin tulong maiibigay sa kanila. Lalo na yung mga bata na maaga nilang naranasan ang lupit ni bagyong ondoy sana hindi po magsasawa mga tao tutulong sa kanila. Prayer is the best weapon that i can share and help them. and thank you sa lahat ng tumulong sa aming kababayan sa pilipinas. DONT LOSE HOPE LIFE MUST GO ON.
OMG! WHAT THE …..! Grabe talaga yang ondoy na yan! malupit. napakadaming nawalan ng bahay. MAs matindi marami pang namatay. I am praying for the souls of those who are still not found and also for those who have passed away. AT SANA NAMAN YANG MGA DEMONYONG TAGA GOBYERNO NA YAN PAG TUMULONG TULONG LANG> WALA NANG HALONG PANGANGAMPANYA> LANG HIYA NAMAN O. TAMA NA TUMUTULONG CLA AND I APPRECIATE THAT PERO UNG PALAGYAN PA NILA NG MGA MUKHA NILA YUNG MGA DE LATA ANO YUN> EH KUNG YUNG PINANG PRINT NILA NG PICS NILA IDINAGDAG NILA SA ITINULONG NILA SA TAO EDI MAS MAGANDA DBA!!!!
im working here in saudi Arabia, at habang napapanood ko yang nangyari satin ako’y na3langin sa panginoon at umiiyak. i think God had a MESSAGE TO US (including me)…..
I lost my most beloved Zol who died trapped in his home at Provident village..He would not have died but his desire to save most of his documents and made him return to his library cost his dear life…He was 83 years old but he looks 10 years or more younger than his real age..with good reflexes coz he still drives a car at long distance places…still witty..intelligent and very much charming..very kind to the needy..oh he was almost perfect..I miss him and will miss him as long as i live because i love him so much..and the deepest pain will linger on and on…May his soul rest in peace and be with the tender hands of God…I love you Zol so very much..
wwawaww buto nin yung lht
About 28 people died in the basement of SM Sta. Mesa because they got trapped by the rushing flood. That’s something that you won’t see in the news. Money makes the world go ’round.
@SM, I’ve been hearing that rumor too but no one I know can really vouch for that. If that’s indeed true, it’s sad that this news story never saw light in mainstream media. May the souls of those who died there rest in peace.
bagyo ondoy malakas ulan walan na tao
malakas na ulan binaha sa marikina sa lumubo sa tula

I’ve been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours today, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my look at, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material material as you most likely did, the net will probably be much more useful than ever before.
I don’t genuinely care how or when i get the Letters in the Mail. Every time it arrives, it feels like a letter should be. It’s suddenly there in my mail box one day. A great, tangible surprise. I am for you doing whatever you want when you send it. Mix it up to the people today who help get it sent out. Include crumbs from your lunch. Coffee stains. Whatever. Keep the tedious character of getting letters out to a minimum by doing whatever you feel like that day. The arrival from the letter and the words with the author inside are what matters. Personally, what I like very best about The Rumpus is that I never ever know what I’ll study that day. Or if there is just not one which day, maybe it’s because Stephen couldn’t discover anything to say or there was much too much likely on.
