98 viewsThe drainage holes in the balcony in the second floor was also covered with leaves in the Dec. 26, 2016 flood, so we bought cheap strainers to cover the holes. We placed half a brick on top to prevent the strainer from being moved by the water. MindaNews photo by Bobby TimoneraJan 18, 2017

101 viewsDuring the flood that hit Iligan and Cagayan de Oro city last Jan. 16, 2017, which was worse than the Dec. 26 flood, the water got only in our garage.

93 viewsOur first line of defense: sandbagging the gates from the outside. The tarpaulin lining further prevented the water from getting in during the Jan. 16, 2017 flood. MindaNews photo by Bobby TimoneraJan 18, 2017
