    Mabuhay!

    I praise God that you and your famliy is in A-1 condition although we can see the damages caused by the typhoon. Don't worry just like you, your orchids will be back to normal in no time.

    Keep safe, my prayers are with you, your family and those affected by the wrath of the typhoon. Godbless

    I can't imagine looking out the door to flooding like that. My heartfelt sympathies to you.

    I once plunked a vanda in a 55 gallon barrel of rain water for a soaking and forgot it. It stayed submerged for a couple of days as I had a family emergency and left home. It survived.

    I am thankful that you and your family are alright. Your orchids are tough as everyone has said. Even those that are underwater for a few days will pull through.
    So sorry and heartfelt sympathies to you, Vangie.

    cheers,
    BD

    Hope everything will be back to normal ASAP. The most important thing is you are safe. Don't worry about the orchids, they'll survive. My prayers to everybody affected by the typhoon.
