To say that last weekend's floods has displaced a lot of people would be an understatement. Who knew that dreary day had so much rain power packed in its punch? Rivers overflowed and submerged streets, and suddenly it wasn't unusual to hear the words "lagpas tao" to describe rain water + mud and muck.
The worst of it, of course, is waiting for news from relatives and friends--especially those who live where "lagpas tao" was often bestowed. I hope and pray this won't ever happen again, and that the other two storms they're saying are headed this way just somehow disappear flying over the Pacific.
Here's a list of places where you can drop off relief goods for those who have been most badly affected by the floods:
Shell gas stations
