Submerged in water

That's what happened to my inlaws' house in Cainta, Rizal.

We're all frantic and worried to death when we saw the late/delayed news from GMA 7 yesterday. Was trying to contact everyone, my brother, sis & brother in laws, relatives and friends to know their whereabouts. We're unlucky last night but my non-stop text messaging and even posting on my Facebook wall paid off when a text message from my brother got through us.
He said they're fine coz they're in higher grounds (Antipolo City) but Felix Subdivision and Midtown Village were submerged in flood water. Felix - most of my relatives live there and Midtown where my inlaws are.
A cousin informed me through Facebook message that the house at Felix Subdivision was indeed submerged and they were all in the 3rd floor of the house.
Later this afternoon one of hubby's SIL answered my text message and informed me my FIL and the rest of the family were in the roof of the house! This really saddened and alarmed me so much I almost cried.
I know I can't do anything about it but pray.... pray that they will not get sick, stay safe and hope that they get the help needed and fast, especially food and dry clothes.

Here's a clip I watched from the internet it came from GMANews.TV. This place is very near to where my families are. This is what I saw this morning that made me worried sick. Reality struck.. and it's sad and painful to know we might have lost people we love and care about and we can't do anything coz we're thousands of miles away from them.... so we're still THANKFUL that it's just things that were drowned, material stuff that were sweeped with mud and not lives lost.
Have a good day and may you all STAY SAFE!!!
God bless...

Hugs to all,
Pin It!
