Flash Flood in Davao City

The number of casualties from the June 27th flash flood is still not fixed due to the fact that there are still a lot of people that are missing.

Davao City is one of the cities in the Philippines that is not visited by typhoon. It is a rare situation that a typhoon would visit Davao, for the last thirty years Davao’s typhoon visit is only one. And so, flood is a rare one here.

But last 27th of June, a Thunderstorm hits Davao. Heavy rains pour and around 11 am the water started to rise. Parts of Davao city has been submerged to water. And before anyone can know it the height of the water is almost at the roof.

The aftermath was seen in the morning, around 25 plus people died and some are missing. 25,000 families are affected. Some completely lost their home and some lost everything. Household parts, appliances and cars are everywhere. Evacuation was ordered afterwards and the bridge connecting the southern part of Davao to the Downtown area is inaccessible.

A lot of people suffered from the flood that everyone didn’t anticipate. Until now, the government and other LGU’s and some private organization are trying to fix the problems around Davao.

Davao will be able to rise from this problem as long as people would help each other.
