Judessa, the Training Coordnator for SolarWinds Academy in Manila, lives along the Marikina river. On August 11th, during a severe monsoon, the water level rose 20.5 meters and inundated their entire community. At its worst, the flood waters rose up to waist deep from the second floor of Jude's house.
Luckily they were all able to move to safety, but the water decimated most of their belongings. The cost of the damage and the cost of getting back what they lost is likely around 50,000 Php or 1000 USD.
