Manila thought the worst was over. We woke up to the good news that Pagasa’s color coded warning signal was lowered to yellow. At 2:00 PM, the rains started to pour and as of this writing at 5:14 PM, the flood waters are starting to rise again. The downpour seems to be stronger than yesterday. Red warning signal was issued by @dost_Pagasa at 04:30 PM, 08 August 2012 (Wednesday)
Target Areas: Metro Manila
Torrential Rainfall (30.0-50.0 mm/hr) over QC, Manila & Marikina, Heavy to Intense rainfall (15.0-30.0 mm/hr) over Pasig, CAMANAVA, Taguig & Pasay while Moderate to Heavy rainfall (7.5-15.0 mm/hr) over the rest of Metro Manila.
Due to the effect of the series of thunderstorms embedded in the Southwest Monsoon, expect Heavy to Intense (15.0-30.0mm/hr) rains with occasional Torrential (more than 30.0mm/hr) rains within 2hrs.
Residents in flood/landslides risk areas are advised to take precautionary measures and WATCH OUT for the next warning.
