True, floods occur everywhere in the world. But what I could never understand is, how come every year without fail, floods occur in the Philippines in the same areas every single year? You would think that one year is enough time to anticipate that a flood will occur so that the city governments could prepare in advance. But no, nothing happens. Except more floods.
In the photo below, it may seem rather dark. But you can see the white hair of an old, bent woman who was caught in a sudden downpour without an umbrella.
She ended up stepping right into the flood, holding a pan over her head.
And off she goes.
Floods make it hard for a lot of people to get home because jeeps and buses are stalled by the flooded roads. They spread disease, etc. etc. My officemate said in her area it floods so much they have little rafts to get by difficult places. Her house however doesn't get flooded because
they have elevated it.
I was trying to take pictures of this flood, and accidentally, instead I was on film mode. So I have 2 films aside from some photos.
The images speak for themselves.
