Photos of Metro Manila flooding due to Typhoon Maring

Metro Manila, along with other nearby towns and cities got stormed by Typhoon Maring for almost two days now. It just seemed like an ordinary drizzle because there's no storm alerts were raised as Maring was not expected to hit land. Usually, we only get downpour that lasts for about 3-6 hrs/day. Maring followed last week’s onslaught of typhoon Labuyo (Utor) which lashed northern Luzon, leaving 11 persons dead and three others still missing as of yesterday.

Several areas in Luzon have been placed under a state of calamity due to the torrential rains brought by an unprecendented southwest monsoon and enhanced by the tropical storm Maring that struck on Monday, August 19.

Tropical storm “Maring” (international name Trami) may still intensify into a typhoon before it leaves the country’s area of responsibility on Thursday morning and heads for Taiwan, according to PAG-ASA. I hope insurance companies are prepared for the amount of claims they will be expecting. Auto-repair shops should be prepared too. Let’s continue praying for those who are still missing and in need of rescuing and also those who have been displaced.

Here' are some photos I have got being shared on the social networking sites:

Kaawa-awa ang mga nabiktima ng bagyong Maring. Salamat na lamang at likas sa mga Pilipino ang pagiging matulungin. Ito ang ipinakita ng mga Pilipino sa Qatar. Nagkaisa sila upang makapagpadala ng tulong sa mga biktima ng bagyo. Ito po yung link mula sa website ng Balitang Q- Filipino news in Qatar
