Manila Flooding

Tropical depression Ondoy began with strong rainfalls on the night of September 25, 2009. A month’s worth of rain fell in the Manila area causing massive flooding. At the time of writing, the level of casualties and property damage has not yet been tallied. The locals of Boracay have extended their help and are raising money to provide assistance to all of the Ondoy casualties. Our sympathies go out to those who were affected.

Luckily for the people of Boracay, the island was spared the impact of this very tragic event. In answer to the questions asked by many potential Boracay visitors: Boracay was unaffected and is as beautiful as ever.

    I hope that the situation is getting better now. We don´t get too much information about the flood over here in Germany – it seems that the ongoings in Sumatra etc. are covered much better
