Things are looking pretty bad there for sure. 

Cagayan de Oro’s SOS: more big trucks, more volunteers please
CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (MindaNews/ 16 Jan) —  “Rescue operations  going on but we need more big trucks and volunteers.”
This sums up the SOS message posted on the Facebook page of the Cagayan de Oro City government at around 8 p.m. Monday, after continuous heavy rains since early afternoon left thousands of residents stranded in schools and offices due to waist-deep or neck-deep floods.



FloodPH: Areas in Cagayan de Oro where forced evacuation is ordered
(UPDATED) On January 16, Cagayan de Oro orders forced evacuation of residents in areas that are prone to flooding
MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Cagayan de Oro officials placed the city under code red early Tuesday morning, January 17, after the water level in Iponan River has reached a critical level.
Local authorities ordered forced evacuation in the following areas that are prone to flooding,
San Simon
"Evacuate as soon as possible," Liza Mazo, Office of Civil Defense (OCD) director in Region X, earlier said, advising affected residents to seek temporary shelter in designated evacuation centers and safer areas. (READ: Thousands stranded as flash floods hit Cagayan de Oro)
The city council declared Cagayan de Oro under state of calamity before dawn Tuesday, January 17, after the streets were submerged in neck-deep floods triggered by the nonstop rains Monday afternoon.
Evacuation centers
The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) reported on Monday night that its field office in the region is closely coordinating with the Cagayan de Oro City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (CDRRMC) to identify the evacuation centers that were opened and the number of evacuees that need assistance.
According to the Cagayan de Oro social welfare and development officer Teddy Sabugaa, the city has opened at least 3 evacuation centers:
Bulua covered court in Barangay Bulua, where there are 27 families or 117 people
Nazareth covered court, where there are 22 families
4th Infantry Division Gymnasium in Patag, where there are 30 families or 120 individuals
Below is the list of other open evacuation centers:
Agusan gym
Aluba Catholic Church
Barangay 7 barangay hall
Bonbon covered court
Bugo gym
Canitoan covered court
Corrales Elementary School
Macasandig covered court
Xavier University covered courts
As of Monday night, at least 31 families from from Barangay Canitoan have been affected by the flooding. At least two houses in the barangay were totally damaged, while 29 others were partially damaged due to flooding, the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) reported.
In Barangay F.S. Catanico, 20 families were affected by flooding.
In a Facebook post, DSWD Secretary Judy Taguiwalo said Monday night that "prepositioned goods of DSWD Field Office 10 are now on standby in the 5 provinces of Northern Mindanao: Bukidnon, Camiguin, Lanao del Norte, Misamis Occidental, and Misamis Oriental.
Stay awake and alert
"Huwag munang matulog at magbantay (Stay awake, stay alert), Listen to the advisories from PAGASA and the LGUs," Mazo reminded affected residents.
It has been rainy in various parts of the country due to a low pressure area (LPA) in Mindanao and the tail-end of a cold front affecting the Visayas.
In a bulletin issued 5:00 pm on Monday, January 16, state weather bureau PAGASA said the LPA is in the vicinity of Kabasalan, Zamboanga Sibugay.
On Tuesday, moderate to heavy rain is expected in the Visayas, the regions of Northern Mindanao and the Zamboanga Peninsula, and the province of Palawan. Those areas should be on alert for floods and landslides. PAGASA warned.



The problem is that the rains fell over a large area, so the rain that fell in the mountains will have an affect on the rivers for a few days as well. 
They are getting a break since the heating of the day has been lost, Unfortunately there is still a lot of moisture in the atmosphere and once the sun starts heating things up again tomorrow the heavy rains will develop in the same areas once again. There was also a lot of rain this evening north and west of Davao City, so I expect the rivers and streams here will get pretty high tomorrow with the run off.

      Citizens of 40 countries traveling to Vietnam now have a simplified process for obtaining travel visas directly from the Vietnam government. Vietnam recently introduced an e-Visa (electronic visa) application system for citizens of 40 countries. Vietnam e-Visas will allow citizens of these 40 countries to visit Vietnam for up to 30 days. The 40 countries included in the Vietnam e-Visa program are Armenia, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Brunei, Bulgaria, Chile, China, Columbia, Czech Republic, Cuba, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Luxembourg, Mongolia, Myanmar, Norway, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Timor Leste, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay and Venezuela. This new two-year, e-Visa pilot program will be in addition to the current Vietnam travel visa processes in place. Holders of the new Vietnam e-Visas will be allowed to arrive into Vietnam through any of the eight international airports including Noi Bai - Hanoi City, Tan Son Nhat - Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang - Da Nang City, Cam Ranh - Nha Trang City, Cat Bi - Hai Phong City, Can Tho - Can Tho City, Lien Khuong – Da Lat City and Phu Quoc - Phu Quoc Island or through any of the 13 international land border crossings. Vietnam e-Visas will cost you a flat fee of $25 USD for a 30-day, SINGLE-ENTRY visa. Your 30 days will start when you arrive into Vietnam, not when your e-Visa is approved. This visa will only be valid for a single entry into Vietnam for up to 30 days, meaning you can’t fly into Vietnam, stay for a few days, travel to Cambodia and then return to Vietnam for your flight back to your country. You can only enter Vietnam once. If you need a multiple-entry visa or want to stay in Vietnam for longer than 30 days, you can apply at . It is fast, cheap, easy and reliable. Vietnam e-Visa application process You will need a scanned copy of your valid passport details page and a scanned passport photo. According to the website instructions, the passport photo must be “straight looking and without glasses.” I’m assuming this means looking forward at the camera and without a smile (and nothing to do with your sexual orientation). You can apply online for a Vietnam e-Visa through this website: Please follow the steps below: 1.    Click on “For Foreigners.” 2.    Upload your passport photo and a copy of your passport details page. These are two separate uploads. You can’t upload your passport details page twice. 3.    Enter in all the required information. 4.    Pay your $25 USD fee and submit your application. Your fee is non-refundable even if your application is later denied. 5.    Once you have submitted your application, you will receive a “registration code.” Keep this code. 6.    At the time of this posting, the e-Visa turnaround time is approximately 3 business days. After the processing time, return back to the website and click on “Search” in the top menu bar. 7.    Enter in your registration code to search for your application to see if it was approved. 8.    If approved, you can print out your Vietnam e-Visa as proof for travel. I know this sounds a little complicated but trust me, this Vietnam e-Visa process is much simpler than the uncertainty and hoops we used to jump through. We no longer have to deal with third-party companies for visa approval letters or mail in our passports to the Vietnam consulate offices. Overall, this is a win-win for citizens of 40 countries. Travelers and it’s a step in the right direction. I’m hoping that multiple-entry visas and longer term visas will be added to this system if it proves to be successful. Disclaimer: Please understand this is a pilot program so there might be some glitches along the way. I have not personally applied for a Vietnam e-Visa through this process so I can’t test out how reliable it is. If any of our readers has any feedback or real life experiences with obtaining a Vietnam e-Visa, please share them with us in the comments section below. Thanks for reading! PhilipJ

      Took a trip down to Ho Tong Hardware to search for the NPT tap and dies that I needed. Turned out that they didn't have any in stock, but I'm not sure that the surly lady that helped me actually understood what I was looking for. A very different experience from Belmont Industrial!
