MANILA, Philippines – A resident of Tatalon in Quezon City is appealing to rescuers to evacuate them from the roof of their homes as flood waters continue to rise.

“Hindi na po kami ok kasi nandito po kami lahat sa bubong sa Barangay Tatalon,” said Charlie Mullon of No. 4, San Roque, Villa Espana II, in Tatalon.

Mullon said 4 small children are also with them.

“May apat na batang kasama po ako ikinakabahala ko kasi maliliit pa po,” he said.

He said they are now on the roof of their home waiting to be rescued.

“Lahat kami nasa bubong. Wala kaming masisilungan. Wala kaming tent. Payong lang po. Siguro mga isang tao na lang po aabutin na kami sa bubong,” he said.

Aside from them, his neighbors were also on the roofs of their homes.

“Malakas yung ulan. Wala pa pong rescue,” he added.
