Been raining here in Cavite 3 days straight. The siren that the Barangay uses to warn people that the river next to us might overflow went off about an hour ago. Thankfully it crested about 1 meter below the overflow threshold. When it does overflow our whole Barangay is cut off from the market, school, any kind of travel because of the mud and debris that make the only road in and out impassable. Anybody else experiencing problems? :rain_80_anim_gif:

Here in Subic Bay Freeport / Olongapo City is literally did not stop raining for about 36 hours until this afternoon, when there was a break.  We live in the old Navy neighborhood in the hills with good drainage, so no issues here.  Except, at the entrance.  They started a drainage project there in January, due to finish in May, and totally botched it so far.  Residents are pissed of.  The road flooded there this morning with a reported 2-3 feet of water.

In Olongapo they use the bridges to measure how high the water is and the danger for flooding.  This is the most recent and much better than about 2 pm.  Two of them were at Critical level then.  The next high tide will raise it all up again and if that coincides with heavy rainfall, there could be flooding.

Just to add for our UK Ex-pats;......... Whaley Bridge dam wall collapse in pictures - BBC News

You could probably pickup a house there real cheap right now!  Never understood why people have to live in some places.

Actually, I would bet they will be able to fix it and I hope everyone stays safe!
