Safety Measures

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

It has been a devastating week for us, Filipinos. It has been raining non-stop which lead to flood all over Luzon and Metro Manila. A lot of my "kababayans" were stranded on the road, the malls, etc. We also lost some of our people. Please pray for our country because as of now the rain has stopped but we will be expecting heavy downpour again later.

Anyways, I would like to share some photos I got from Twitter that will show safety precautions, emergency hotlines, etc. Please save them and share them:

FROM REDCROSS: If you need to be rescued, call 143 and 527-0000. Put a white blanket outside your house so rescuers can locate where you are.
