The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) continued to warn the public of possible flashfloods and landslides as the low-pressure area would bring rains today.

“The whole country will experience mostly cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms, becoming cloudy with widespread rains over the western section of Luzon which may trigger flashfloods and landslides,” PAGASA said.

PAGASA administrator Nathaniel Servando said cloudy skies with light rains will prevail over Metro Manila today.

The weather system was not expected to intensify into a tropical storm while moving away from the country, he added.

Servando said no other disturbance will affect the country in the next five days.

“Residents living in low-lying areas and along mountain slopes are advised to be on alert for possible occurrence of flashfloods and landslides,” he said.

At La Mesa Dam in Quezon City, the water level remained under red alert at 79.74 meters yesterday.

Over 4,000 persons in Luzon affected by floods–NDRRMC

MANILA, Philippines – Over 4,000 people were affected by floods brought about by the low pressure Aarea (LPA) that drenched a large area of Luzon on Tuesday.

In the municipality of Bombon, Bicol alone, 800 families or 4000 persons were affected when the creek that feeds into the Bicol River overflowed causing approximately two feet- or knee-high waters, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said in its report Wednesday.

The villages of San Roque, San Jose, San Isidro, Sto. Domingo, Pagao, and San Antonio were affected by the flooding, it said.

In the Municipality of Camaligan, Barangay San Roque, 40 families or 200 persons experienced knee deep water levels.

In Alabat, Quezon, 12 families or 50 persons were evacuated to the Barangay Hall of Poblacion 1 due to flashfloods, NDRRMC said.

Barangay Mayamot and Bagong Nayon in Antipolo had to evacuate three families or 15 persons due to landslides.

Two villages in Obando, Bulacan, Barangay Lawa and Pagasa, experienced two feet- or knee-high floods while 1.5 feet-high waters hit Barangay Panghulo and Catanghalan, it said. The number of people affected was not reported by the NDRRMC.

Obando Mayor Orencio Gabriel told Radyo Inquirer 990AM that the flooding was aggravated by the high tide.

He added that garbage from Metro Manila and nearby towns in Bulacan remained a problem for Obando, and that a dike was badly needed to prevent flooding.

One foot deep floods affected the residents of Barangay Betis and Poblacion in Guagua, Pampanga.

The NDRRMC, citing reports from the Metro Manila Development Authority Flood Control Center, said that flood waters in Metro Manila have subsided.

At least two people were also killed Tuesday when a wall, weakened by the non-stop rain, collapsed and crushed three shanties on Gen. T. De Leon Road near the boundary of Barangay (village) Ugong in Pasig City.

MANILA, JULY 5, 2012 (TIMES) Written by : Jing Villamente And Sammy Martin, Reporters - Rainstorm cancels classes, flights

HEAVY rains brought by a low-pressure area (LPA) pounded Metro Manila and neighboring areas on Tuesday, triggering floods that forced classes, work and flights to be cancelled, as well as leaving at least two people dead.

The downpour prompted officials of different dams to be on heightened alert, while the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) warned those living near two big rivers in Pampanga province and the Bicol Region that these may possible overflow.

Pagasa said that the LPA—earlier located north of Alumbong village in Batangas City, Batangas province—had a wide band of clouds that circulated and affected a large area.

“It’s a mini-storm without the winds,” weather forecaster Jeri Loiz said. He added that rainfall ranging from light to intense was recorded in Tanay town, Rizal province; Sangley Point, Cavite province; Science Garden in Quezon City; and Manila’s Port Area.

Some 43.4 millimeters of rainfall were recorded at Port Area, 22.9 mm in Science Garden, and 22.4 mm in Sangley Point early Tuesday morning.

“[The LPA] will continue to bring moderate to heavy rain over central and southern Luzon, including Metro Manila, and even Western Visayas,” Loiz said. He added that the weather would improve by tomorrow.

The rains triggered floods in several parts of the National Capital Region, prompting the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) to deploy flood control and monitoring teams to flooded areas as early as 5 a.m.

MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino reported that waist-high floodwaters in V. Luna Street in Quezon City rendered the thoroughfare impassable to vehicles, while the corner of Andalucia and Laong Laan streets was only passable to light vehicles.

In Makati City, roads in the villages of Pio del Pilar, Tejeros and La Paz were also impassable to light vehicles.

Floods were also reported in several villages in the cities of Caloocan, Malabon and Navotas.

No classes The rains also prompted the mayors of several cities in Metro Manila to suspend classes at almost all levels in private and public schools.

Mayor Florencio Bernabe of Paraсaque City said that he suspended classes to ensure that students would not get stranded on the way home.

Mayor Alfredo Lim of Manila, Mayor Antonino Calixto of Pasay City and Mayor Herbert Bautista of Quezon City followed Bernabe’s lead, suspending classes from preschool to high school. Lim also suspended classes at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila and the City College of Manila, and sent city hall employees home by 1 p.m.

Classes up to the high school level were also suspended in the cities of Caloocan, Las Piсas, Makati, Malabon, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Muntinlupa, Navotas, Pasig, San Juan, Taguig, Valenzuela, as well as in Pateros town.

The weather also forced the cancellation of six domestic flights, leaving hundreds of passengers stranded. These flights were: Cebu Pacific Air flights 5J-521 (Manila to Naga City, Camarines Sur province), 5J-522 (Naga City to Manila), 5J-529 (Manila to Busuanga town, Palawan province) and 5J-530 (Busuanga to Manila); and AirPhil Express flights 2P-265 (Manila to Naga City) and 2P-266 (Naga City to Manila).

Two dead The rains also claimed lives when two residents of a northern Manila suburb were crushed to death after a “stone wall beside their house collapsed,” Anna Orallo of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) told Agence France-Presse.

She said that waist-deep floods swamped low-lying areas of Manila after a dam near the city overspilled and had to open its gates, swelling rivers downstream.

Tolentino blamed much of the flooding on waterways being clogged by garbage dumped into storm drains and sewers.

“The garbage is the main source of our floods. The whole nation needs to find a way to lessen the garbage,” he said in an interview with ABS-CBN television.

Authorities warned that a brewing storm would continue to dump rains over Luzon, possibly bringing landslides and more flooding to the region.

At the La Mesa Dam in Quezon City, officials placed it under red alert due to the rains. The dam’s water level rose to 79.52 meters, or .50 meters near the spilling level of 80.15 meters.

Engineer Teddy Angeles, headworks manager of the dam, said that he recommended the evacuation of residents near the Tullahan River and warned residents of Fairview to be on alert.

In Bulacan, officials of Ipo Dam opened two gates to release excess water due to heavy rains.

The dam’s level reached 101.75 meters, past its normal water level of 100.5 meters.

Ipo Dam’s management alerted local government units in the towns of Norzagaray, San Rafael, Bustos, Baliuag, Plaridel, Angat and Calumpit of this development as the dam continues to release water.

Meanwhile, Elmer Caringal, a hydrologist with Pagasa, alerted residents living near the Pampanga River and the Bicol river basin to be wary of creeks spilling.

Local authorities in those areas were also advised to be alert, specifically the NDRRMC regional offices. With Reports From Jovee Marie N. Dela Cruz, Benjie L. Vergara, Marvs Libril and AFP

4 villages still under water

FOUR out of the 37 villages in Iloilo City that were under water during heavy rains are still submerged in water as southwest monsoon continues to bring rain showers in Western Visayas.

These villages are among those without proper drainage system, as most of the lots here are privately owned.

Despite this, Darwin Papa, medical response officer of the City Disaster Risk Management Office, said the city largely benefits from the multibillion-peso flood control project, which helps mitigate the effects of floods in low-lying areas of the city.

The project was started in 2006 and officially completed on April 20, 2009, spanning from the municipality of Pavia, Iloilo to Iloilo City by tapping the convergence of Tigum and Aganan rivers in Pavia.

Papa also identified four villages with proper drainage system as Barangays Lanit, Buntatala and Calubihan in Jaro district and So-oc in Arevalo district. (Lydia C. Pendon)

Several Metro Manila roads flooded

MANILA, Philippines—Several roads were flooded following a sudden heavy downpour in Metro Manila Friday afternoon, a Metropolitan Manila Development Authority-Flood Control unit official said.

Michael Puya said gutter-level floods at 20 centimeter high was monitored along R. Papa, Rizal Avenue in Manila at 3:15 p.m., as well as at C4 Lescano J. Felipe Street along Gen. San Miguel.

Nonetheless, these roads were passable to all types of vehicles, Puya said.

Meanwhile, traffic was heavy along the northbound lane of EDSA, with the bumper-to-bumper line of cars starting from Malibay, Pasay all the way to Santolan, caused by the implementation of the Yellow Lane Policy along EDSA, Chris Almeron of MMDA’s Metrobase said.

Same goes for the southbound lane, he said, which was likewise congested with line of vehicles from EDSA-Paramount near SM North to Ortigas approaching flyover.

Medium traffic, on the other hand, was monitored along EDSA-Pinatubo in Mandaluyong, with line of traffic ending along Ayala, Buendia.
