Flash Flood in Iligan

Hello guys! this is our house after it was hit with flash flood yesterday... :(

At about 7:30 in the evening yesterday, the water came in fast inside our house. My mom begun to panic as she saw the flow of the water coming in so fast inside the living room. We immediately carry all our things upstairs and some appliances such as the refrigerator, and the gas range were lift up on the bigger chair, high enough that the water could not reach it... The water was about 1ft deep. It was said that the river overflowed again that's why the residence near the bridge was affected and flooded including ours. Few minutes after the water came in, the electricity went out... It was really an unlucky day yesterday... :(

Today, we cleaned our house the whole day... We also asked help to my mother's classroom sweeper... He and my father cleaned the floor with mud while me and my mother washed the rags and wipe the furniture that was also very muddy...

That does not look like a fun mess to deal with. Wish you all the best.
