Over 40,000 people were displaced and 11 were reported missing following Wednesday’s downpour caused by Tropical Storm “Falcon” (International codename: Meari), the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management said.
According to PAGASA, the volume of rainwater dumped by “Falcon” Thursday, which flooded several parts of Metro Manila and other areas on the west side of the country, was estimated at 147.3 mm in 24 hours. Tropical storm “Ondoy,” which brought the worst flood in Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon in the last 10 years, hurled some 300 mm of rainwater in just six hours.
Flood water Level of Marikina river is getting higher causing residents to be anxious. A blogger reports as of 6PM, ” it has spilled over onto the road. If it goes up by two more feet according to local authorities, they’ll sound the siren for evacuation of the low-lying residential areas. The frightening part is that it’s almost nighttime and the rains have not let up.”
