Flood Damage

Again Mindanao is experiencing a massive heavy rainfall that causes nine dead and over twenty thousand houses were destroyed. According to the report of National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) that 37,889 families or about 191,586 people have been affected. Parts of Misamis Occidental and Misamis Oriental provinces in the south remain submerged, while continuing heavy rains have forced a cancellation of air services by small domestic carriers. Schools also remain closed, while in swollen rivers in Agusan del Norte province led to flooding. Storm surges were also reported in many coastal areas.
I believe this incident is one way that God wants us to realize that to take care of his creation.
