#NegrosNeedsHelp: Flooded for the second time

Wazzup Pilipinas!

On New Year's Day, three cities in Negros Island were ravaged by floods as high as 10 meters. While the waters have receded, locals still need immediate help.

We are knocking on your hearts! Negros Occidental was flash flooded for the 2nd time this month. Residents are still rebuilding after the devastation of the January 1 flood when this stronger flood came.

The continuous flooding in Negros is exacerbated by hard pouring rains. Areas in Northern Negros are flooding.

Talisay, Victoria and Silay are experiencing heavy floods due to heavy rainfall. And EB Magalona too guys. Magkalapit silang apat na cities.






2021 has seen TWO intense flash floods submerge the cities of Talisay, Silay, and Victorias in just one week. Many parts are still underwater, with residents taking shelter in bus terminals, gyms, and outside shopping malls.

There's a continuous rise of water in due to incessant rain and flooding in Negros Occidental for the past few days.

The people need rescue as soon as possible! They are in need of assistance and rescue kasi umaabot na sa level 5 yung tubig.

Waters are continuing to rise in different parts of Negros, leaving thousands stranded inside their homes.



If you guys have relatives/friends in the cities mentioned, you can call these emergency hotlines for assistance. 

In light of the recent flooding in Talisay City, we are once again asking if you may kindly donate to help our Negrosanon kasamas. 

If you have any to spare, please donate to the appropriate channels. The beneficiaries are affected areas will be grateful.

Relief Ops Updates and flood details are currently being posted online.

Relief ops coordinator states that basic food packs, ready to eat food items, hygiene materials and clothes are the impending needs of the more than 17,000 families affected by the flash floods.

There are 7 evacuation centers in Talisay City, and one formal evacuation area in Victorias City Coliseum, with others at Citymall or the bus terminal. 

State of evacuees in Victorias City, at Citymall and the Ceres Bus Terminal. People have crowded and are left stranded due to roads still submerged and unusable until this morning.  

The family of Kadalag-an Queen 2020 in Victorias have also organized a relief effort in coordination with the student government of Victorias City National High School. 

In Victorias City, two sugar centrals are closed: the Victorias Milling Company and the Hawaiian-Philippine Milling Company.  Floods still remain in the area. 

While everyone is busy doing their own business, let us show some kindness by praying for our fellowmen. 

Kindly message the coordinators if your organization wishes to coordinate relief efforts with affected Negrosanons. Thank you!

Madamo gid nga salamat! Thank you!
