Floods hit Bulacan, Pampanga; no classes

Heavy rain prompted officials in Pampanga and Bulacan to suspend classes in elementary and high schools yesterday as water levels in central Luzon’s rivers rose and coastal villages were swamped by high tide, local officials said.

In two areas in Rizal province, a 12-year-old girl drowned and some 100 families fled their homes amid fears of flooding in their community.

Mayor Ricardo Rivera of Guagua town in Pampanga called off classes in public and private elementary schools.

Water spilled over a dike in Barangay (village) San Juan Nepomuceno and town employees started clearing it of lilies to hasten the flow of water from Sta. Rita and Porac towns, he said.

Some 200 houses and several schools which had earlier moved to the base of a dike along eight eastern coastal villages in Masantol town were submerged under a foot high of water due to water draining from the upper Pampanga River and high tide from Manila Bay.

Hilton Hernando, chief of the Pampanga River Basin Flood Forecasting and Monitoring Center, said, however, water levels in various monitoring stations of the Pampanga River remain below alert level.

Water levels rose minimally downstream due to high tide, he said.

Operations of airlines at the Clark International Airport at the Clark Freeport were normal, said Victor Jose Luciano, president and chief executive officer of Clark International Airport Corp. He said there was no diversion or cancellation of flights.

Bulacan

In Bulacan, floods forced officials in Norzagaray, Donya Remedios Trinidad and Obando towns to suspend classes in elementary and high schools.

Felicisima Mungcal, Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) head, said the Ipo and Bustos dams started releasing water yesterday morning following continuous rains.

Water level at Ipo reached 100.78 meters above sea level (masl), slightly exceeding the spilling level of 100.1 masl.

Mungcal said the Bustos Dam had to also release water because it is located downstream of Ipo and catches water released by that dam.

She, however, said the water released from the two dams was very minimal.

Water level at the Angat Dam was recorded at 189.09 masl, still below its spilling level of 212 to 214 masl.

In Nueva Ecija, Cabanatuan City Mayor Julius Cesar Vergara suspended classes for kindergarten and elementary schools.

Dr. Abraham Pascua, cochair of the PDRRMC, said the body’s command posts were activated in Barangay Puncan in Carranglan town, San Casimiro in Licab town and one each in the towns of Rizal and Jaen to respond to any emergency as heavy rains hit the province.

New gymnasiums built by the provincial government were elevated and designed to be used as evacuation centers, he said.

Baguio City

In Baguio City, heavy rains on Saturday and Sunday triggered minor rock slides along some Cordillera roads, reports from the Office of Civil Defense in the region.

These roads, however, were opened yesterday.

Work crews started clearing the Talalay section of the Abra-Kalinga Road and had opened a section of the Shilan-Beckel Road in Benguet to traffic, it said.

A lane along Kennon Road in Barangay Camp 3 in Tuba, Benguet, was cleared of rocks and mud and opened to traffic.

Personnel of the Department of Public Works and Highways also cleared a lane of the Itogon-Dalupirip Road in Benguet, which is also prone to landslides during the rainy season.

Rizal

Kiana Maru Obleada, 12, drowned in Bibit Falls in Barangay Mayamot in Antipolo City at around 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, the lone casualty reported in Rizal province amid incessant rain brought on by Typhoon “Butchoy,” said Vicente Tomazar, director of the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council in the Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon).

Malabon residents seek high ground as dike gives way

Floodwaters in several barangays in Malabon City rose to high levels because of heavy rain, prompting the city government to evacuate residents on Monday.

Bong Padua, chief public information officer, told the Inquirer that 19 families living along the riverbanks in Barangay Tinajeros had to be relocated to the barangay hall.

The flooding was compounded when water overflowed from   a dike near Tullahan River.

Parts of it were destroyed by the heavy rains overnight and the high tide, Padua said.

Catch basin

The dike serves as a catch basin for water coming from Quezon City, Valenzuela City and Bulacan province, among others.

To prevent the water from spilling into the residential areas, the City Engineering Office deployed teams to sandbag the destroyed portions of the dike.

In Barangay Potrero, eight families had to be moved to Malabon Elementary School after floodwaters reached from 14 to 30 inches.

The City Social Welfare Development Office would shoulder the evacuees’ food, he said.

Although the street was accessible to bigger vehicles such as cars and buses as of 11 a.m., the floodwaters caused heavy traffic in the area.

The Inquirer spotted a roving truck with “Libreng Sakay” and NPD (Northern Police District) on its side.

The truck, as of 11 a.m., however, was empty.

Stranded commuters

Padua said the vehicle carried stranded commuters around

7 a.m.

In Barangays Tanong, Santulan, Baritan and Concepcion, water levels rose from 8 to 30 inches, according to a report by the City Disaster Risk Reduction Office submitted to Acting Mayor Antolin Oreta III.

Classes were suspended for the whole day in 42 private elementary schools, 28 public elementary schools and nine public high schools in the city, according to Padua.

The City of Malabon University in Barangay Longos and the City of Malabon Polytechnic Institute in Barangay Concepcion also announced a suspension of classes for the entire day.

Floods disrupt classes; new LPA spotted0

Manila, Philippines -  Severe flooding caused by heavy rains that pounded Luzon late Sunday until early yesterday caused several cities and municipalities in Metro Manila and Central Luzon to suspend classes in pre-school, elementary and high school.

This developed as the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) yesterday said that typhoon “Butchoy” (international name Guchol) has moved further away from the country as another tropical storm is expected to enter the country tonight.

The cities of Malabon and Navotas in Metro Manila, and Olongapo City in Zambales were among the local government units (LGUs) that declared class suspension in all levels as a result of floods and rising water in their rivers up until morning.

Education Secretary Armin Luistro praised the LGUs for stepping up and assuming the responsibility given them by Malacañang to decide on class suspension in times of bad weather and floods.

Malacañang said the declaration of suspension of classes mainly relied on the situation in specific areas and on the discretion of concerned local government executives.

Under Executive Order 66 issued by President Aquino last month that implemented localized class suspension, LGUs have been given the responsibility to declare class suspensions in their respective jurisdictions during times of heavy rain and flood.

Malabon and Navotas suspended classes from kindergarten to college due to flash floods that were compounded by the 1.6-meter high tide.

Bong Padua, Malabon City public information office chief, said that although the weather improved in the afternoon, the city government decided to postpone whole day classes in “all levels” because of the high tide at 10 a.m.

He said that although the city’s 26 pumping stations helped in minimizing the effects of the floodwater, they wanted to protect students from possible harm.

Navotas Mayor John Rey Tiangco also suspended classes in all levels as they too were affected by flash flood and high tide.

The city has 26 working pumping stations but they were not enough to control the rising seawater.

Jane Banayad, Navotas public information officer, said that apart from the pumping stations, the city is also protected from an overflowing Tullahan River by at least 10 feet high river wall.

According to the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), there was flooding in Barangay Catmon, Letre Road, Barangay Longos and General Luna in Malabon; Naval, the City Hall area and the North Bay Boulevard area in Navotas.

Except for the two cities, Metro Manila was practically spared from the flooding although the San Juan River overflowed and the Talayan area in Quezon City was knee-deep in water.

In Caloocan and Valenzuela, only a few schools suspended classes as both cities were not badly affected by the flash flood.

Classes in elementary and high school in Marikina were also suspended as the Montalban River rose to 23.6 meters in the morning, close to its critical level of 24 meters, although no flooding was monitored in major streets of the city.

Dam monitoring

In Bulacan, the reservoir of the Ipo dam released excess water after the spilling level of 100.1 meters was breached. Local officials announced that the auxiliary Bustos rubber dam has also opened two spill gates and released 48 cubic centimeters per second of water.

The water elevation at Angat dam was 189.04 meters, way below its spilling level of 212 meters.

Classes in elementary and high school in the towns of Doña Remedios Trinidad, Norzagaray and the coastal town of Obando were suspended.

In Guagua, Pampanga, classes in elementary and high school were suspended and local officials issued related warnings in low-lying areas.

At least 13 people have remained missing in the coastal area of Sarangani province.

The Philippine Army rescued 368 people from the flash floods in the town of Glan, while those who went missing were fishermen from the town of Maasim.

The municipality of Glan has been placed under a state of calamity.

Another tropical storm threatens the country

Meanwhile, PAGASA administrator Nathaniel Servando said tropical storm with international name “Talim” was forecast to enter the Philippine territory tonight or early tomorrow.

It will be named “Carina” once inside the country’s area of responsibility.

“It (Talim) will enter PAR (Philippine area of responsibility) on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. It will not directly affect most parts of the country except for Batanes,” Servando told The STAR.

Servando said Talim would enhance the southwest monsoon and bring rains over Northern Luzon and the western section of Central Luzon.

Butchoy, on the other hand, would continue to boost the southwest monsoon that will dump heavy rains over Luzon, particularly the western section and Visayas in the next few days, which may trigger flash floods and landslides.

Butchoy did not directly hit the country but brought heavy rains, triggering floods in some parts Luzon and Visayas.

As of 4 p.m. yesterday, the eye of Butchoy was spotted at 700 km northeast of Basco, Batanes with maximum sustained winds of 150 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 185 kph.

The typhoon was moving north northeast at 30 kph.

As of 4 p.m. yesterday, the eye of Talim was located 800 km west of extreme Northern Luzon with maximum sustained winds of 75 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 90 kph. It was forecast to move northeast slowly.

PAGASA warned operators of fishing boats and other small sea vessels not to venture into the seas of Luzon and Visayas due to the big waves generated by Butchoy and the southwest monsoon.

Butchoy was predicted to be at 1,030 km northeast of Basco, Batanes or at 290 km east northeast of Okinawa, Japan this morning.

PAGASA said Talim was expected to pass through the western part of Batanes and Taiwan, and would not likely interact with Butchoy. – Helen Flores, Non Alquitran, Jerry Botial, Pete Laude, Mike Frialde, Dino Balabo, Ric Sapnu, Edith Regalado, Aurea Calica

Flood toll rises to six in Assam - 2 women, 2 minors drown in submerged pond in Barpeta

Barpeta/Nalbari, June 18: The first wave of floods in the state claimed four more lives today, taking the death toll since yesterday to six.

Official sources said altogether 14 of the 27 districts of the state have been affected in the first wave.

Barpeta deputy commissioner Siddhartha Singh told The Telegraph that while four persons lost their lives at Bhella in the district this morning, the body of Jyoti Kalita, 13, a Class VI student, who was washed away by floodwaters, was recovered today.

Manisha Das, 9, died at Nagaon, 5km from Barpeta town, yesterday.

Officials said four members of a family, Rahima Begum, 25, her child, Madhan Begum, 5, Rita Begum, 20 and Halida Begum, 12, lost their lives when they accidentally fell into a deep pond submerged by floodwaters at Bhella.

“The victims were on their way to look up some of their flood-hit relatives at Bhella. They were walking on a narrow road along the pond, which was also submerged by floods. Eyewitnesses said Rahima Bugum, who was carrying Madhan in her lap, first fell into the pond. Seeing this, Rita and Halida tried to rescue them, but they, too, fell in,” the source said.

While Rahima and Madhan died on the spot, Rita and Halida were declared dead at Barpeta Medical College and Hospital.

Singh said the administration had decided to give Rs 5,000 as compensation to families of the flood victims. He said the administration was keeping a watch on the situation and making preparations to meet any eventuality in the days to come.

While more than one lakh people have already been affected by the floods in Barpeta district, most of the tributaries of the Brahmaputra such as Pahumara, Palla, Kaldia, Burhadiya and Tihu are showing a rising trend. The tributaries have breached embankments at several places and caused devastation in the district for the third consecutive day today.

Road communication in most of the areas of the district has been completely disrupted as most of the roads have either been submerged or washed away by floodwaters.

The Kaldiya, Tihu, Pahumara, Palla and Burhadiya rivers have eroded embankments at several places in the district.

However, the Brahmaputra and the Beki have not eroded or breached embankments at any place so far. But the Beki embankment at Narayanguri and the Brahmaputra embankment at Fulbari have become vulnerable because of heavy erosion.

The Sarthebari circle in Barpeta district is the worst affected.

Almost 100 villages under this circle have been submerged by the floodwaters and reports of inundation of new areas are pouring in.

Pisciculture in the district has suffered a major setback with more than 50 per cent of the fisheries being washed away.

Road communication between Howli and Barpeta and Bhabanipur and Barpeta has been disrupted since this morning as both these roads have been submerged by floodwater.
