FLOODING IN CDO

This is the Reddit link to photos of flooding.  This is serious.  I wonder how many times this has happened?  And is there anything they can do to mitigate or stop further occurrences? Or do they just consider it an act of god and sit on their hands for the inevitable?

One of the worst hit areas was at the Limketkai Mall, right in the center of town on the National highway. My buddy's bike got flooded while he was doing errands while parked there. I myself was stranded for about 3 hours at Ayala Mall a kilometer away. I sent my GF home in a taxi before it got too bad and she was forced to get out of the taxi and walk across a washout in waste-high water to our house in the hills. School was cancelled yesterday but it was pretty much clear roads everywhere by yesterday morning. A few unfortunate squatters lost there lives when they rebuilt next to the part of the river that flooded during Sendong. I believe one life was lost due to a small landslide.

I dont know, but maybe this is part of the problem in LKK... (Bitan-ag Creek)

It sounds like the water was rising fast and furious.  What was the duration of the flooding; when did it start, and has it started to go down?  Is the city government helping the squatters with food and shelter?

It was a 1 day event. Roads were good to go by morning.

 

However, today we are getting rain all day and at times it's damn heavy...forcast calls for continued rain all night and tomorrow...could be another repeat.

This is most definitely the problem. Poor design in a historically flood-prone part of the city. they need at least 1 more drainage culvert away from LKK and a solution to keep debris out.

Looks like CDO has been getting hit hard again this evening.

You can say that again. pouring pretty hard for the last few hours with much more expected.

My fiancee and I live here, and she heard that water was released from a dam which caused a lot of the damage.  I have seen no story on this on the news so assume it was just a far-fetched rumor.  Yes, Wednesday night here and the rain is semi-constant with 15 or so minutes letup and then away we go again.

      Don't know how long this has been an issue, but over the last few months Netflix and Amazon movies have been buffering, lately it has become annoying so I started looking into it.   I am in the US by the way, but think this could be an international problem. I am with Comcast Infinity and should have 20mb service with a Motorola SB6121 modem 6 to 7 years old.   This is not a rented modem from Xfinity, I own it. I have avg of 3.2 download and around 1 upload.   I contacted tech support and they were pretty good on the phone, but emphasized that this is not their modem so speeds are not guaranteed. After 20 minutes of on the phone resetting things, removing router from system they declared my modem is the problem and they want to send me one of theirs. At $10 month rental. I don't trust them but cannot seem to find a way to tell if it is the modem and cannot seem to find a way to test it.   Any thoughts on this or websites would be appreciated.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace
