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.

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

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.

Here is the flood potential map through 5pm local time. Looks like today will be a repeat of the past few with more off and on heavy rain in CDO.
