Repeat! Oli Reyes remembers Ondoy victims
The torrential rains reminded Atty. Oli Reyes of a painful memory. The abogado posted an anecdote that happened years ago during a massive flooding in Metro Manila that claimed many lives.
Once came across the Twitter account of a young girl who died at Provident Village during Ondoy, some years earlier. She was livetweeting the rising of waters up, the concern very slowly creeping, up until she boarded her car to escape the floods. That was so unnerving to read.

Reyes said that he once stumbled upon the Twitter account of a young Ondoy victim. The abogado said that she lived in Provident Village and was livetweeting how much the water rose during the heavy downpour.
The abogado said that the young girl exhibited a range of emotions from irritation to fear. He said that as the concerns rise, it was unnerving to read how she desperately boarded her car to escape the floods.
It’s like we never learn!
