Jul 17, 2018

When your house is flooded ...Amusing footage of a husband reclining in his typhoon-flooded living room - jokingly saying ''come on in, the water's warm."Reynaldo Bautista, 45, was among hundreds of thousands of people affected by Typhoon Henry causing flooding across the Philippines over the last week.But the father-of-two showed off his positive spirit by donning his swimming trunks and lounging in his living room as if he was relaxing in his very own private pool. Speaking Filipino, he says to the camera: ''Come on, let's take a bath. This flood has given us a private swimming pool. Nice. Come on in, the water's warm.''The footage was filmed at Reynaldo's home in Bulacan Province on July 14. Reynaldo's wife, Susan, said the family will wait for the water to subside before attempting repairs.She said: ''I wouldn't quite call it relaxing by the poolside, but I suppose it's making the best out of a bad situation.''Tropical storm Typhoon Henry - now given the international name Son-tihn - has caused widespread flooding across the Philippines with central regions near the capital Manila hit badly.Dante Balao, Office of the Civil Defense regional director, said provinces Batanes, Cagayan, Babuyan Islands, Apayao and Ilocos Norte are under tropical cyclone warning.He said: ''The Philippine Coastguard has already effected the ‘no sail’ policy in all types of sea crafts. They are now monitoring our coastal zones to prohibit even fishing boats to venture out over the seaboard.''
