Good luck to all those who are affected. Been raining hard here the last couple of days but no flooding as of yet like the last time a few weeks back. Make sure if you have to walk in that water that you do not have any open wounds of any sorts, a guy here died a few days ago as a result of the floods after contracting leptospirosis.

Seems terrible to have to deal with the floods several times each rainy season.
Have so much invested in my current house, if I could find work here I would move for sure and in a more populated area or closer to modern convenience's and restaurants.

There are times I really love the spot I live in but the flooding seems to be getting worse it's two years in a row now, usually it takes 4 years between flooding so somebody is crowding out the water or ? There seems to be very little will or money for fixing the lakes issue's.

Default Flooded

The lower half of my house has started flooding, we live next to the Laguna de Bay, here's some quick shots I took, the house was dark inside but I have 4 inches plus inside it keeps rising.

1st photo is the upstairs patio the next photo is the back of the house, our water pump or jet matic I had the electric motor raised higher it's located on the other side of the tank at the very top.

The photos came out good this time but thats gonna be a mess to clean out of the lower level when the drainage stops. There is one area of our town that gets like that most every year and still the govt does nothing to prevent it..

All family members got a check from the government, by the time they get to our house the family has already informed them that the foreigner lives there and they come over do the paper work and we end up with no help.

I told the wife that when they come by this year we will tell them that were still waiting for money from the last two typhoons so where's the money? what's the point in wasting an hour of our time filling out forms, one family member lives in a large nice house and they have one daughter abroad the other a school teacher they got money.

The wife also mentioned to the government worker that the family talk badly about us so we never get assistance because they tell the government worker's that were rich, (not true), the worker mentioned that wealth has no bearing on our assistance..... all family members received 10,000 Peso's last year we received a duck egg once again and I had several family members in our house, had all kinds of electrical damage plus water damage, loss of goats and chickens, I had to hire an electrician to fix problems.

Default rain

Still raining here too,,non stop. The prob isnt just the rains,,,roads have collapsed. Along with the rain then high tide hits and thats all she wrote. Moving to leyte next month. This sealed the deal. Family offer too good down there to refuse. Wife said if i dont like it we can leave.
