Photos: Day 2 Floods in Manila #floodsPH

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.

@dost_pagasa announced that as of 05:25PM: At 05:00PM observation: Torrential rainfall (40.0-55.0 mm/hr) over QC and Marikina, Heavy to Intense rainfall (15.0-25.0 mm/hr) over Manila, North of Caloocan and Pasig while Moderate to Heavy rainfall (5.0-15.0 mm/hr) over the rest of Metro Manila. #ncr

Further explanation as of 05:45PM shows that ” Sudden downpour of Heavy to Torrential rains was experienced during the past 2-3 hours in most parts of Metro Manila and some surrounding areas. The rains were caused by the occurence of a series of thunderstorm which is commonly associated with rains of high intensity. We will closely monitor weather developments and provide updates.pagasadost ”
