Thank you guys for all the thoughts and prayers. Although I no longer live there I still have family members and relatives that do although most of them live outside of Manila and in a town where it doesn't get flooded. I was born and raised there and had experienced one major disaster (Mount Pinatubo eruption) in the 90's and I know how it feels to be in the middle of all these especially when there's not enough resources available to help all these people. It is hard, I can't even watch the news without breaking in tears.
I have sent text message to my family over there but have not heard back, they don't have a landline so I can't even call. From what I heard on the Filipino news earlier a lot of cell towers are not working and there's probably no electricity
Anyway, I'm glad to hear from fellow members that lives there. Thank God you guys are okay. And hoping to hear from other fellow members as well.
