some updates

Maybe some books to keep your Nook company today? New Flipside titles are now up at Barnes and Noble, including the Philippine Speculative Fiction series and books by Sarge Lacuesta, Rye Gutierrez, and my own Lower Myths.

The heavy rains, with rainfall levels that now surpass the infamous Ondoy, have been nonstop over the metro and nearby provinces since Monday night. Still raining here in Makati, though some floods have receded.

Bulacan, my home province, is now under State of Calamity. There has been water inside our house for almost a month now. What are our elected officials doing?

The two days of rain in QC now exceeds the monthly rainfall normally experienced by the entire National Capital Region.

Ten out of 17 cities in NCR are under State of Calamity.

The Cubao underpass is now closed to traffic.

BBC posted some photos here.

A friend of mine snapped this photo in UP Diliman today. Look at that “lake” in front of the Oblation.

And so on.
