Pictures of Provident Village Marikina in the aftermath of typhoon Ondoy's floods

This used to be my father-in-law's house on Harvard Street, Holy Family, Provident Village, Marikina.  It's just an empty shell right now and mud is everywhere.

It is just about a block away from Riverside Drive, which of course, is beside the river.

Flood waters rose up to around 15 feet or more. Everything in it (furniture, appliances, clothes, you name it) it call got damaged.  The noisy dog they have is missing too.

But, I guess, this is the worst of it and others have bigger problems.  Especially poorer communities outside of Provident Village.

MMDA Chairman and former Marikina Mayor Bayani Fernando took the blame for it.  But I guess, that really doesn't do much help.

Other bloggers have begun distributing pictures of relief goods with labels bearing the names of certain candidates.  But, just by looking at the picture, it's easy to see that the food packet with the label could have easily been made up (just by putting a label on an ordinary styropore food container).  Another blogger put up a picture of the President's son buying vodka.

Come on people, leave the politicking till later!  Put up posts saying how other people can help those who have lost everything.
