It’s been raining here at abnormal level for 2 days. Work was suspended yesterday and it’s a good thing I decided not to report today too because work was again suspended at our office later this afternoon. I am both sad and worried for those who still came to work today and now cannot go home because most of the roads are flooded (waist deep again) by now.So DOST-PAGASA raised its alert to red for the second time this week: RED WARNING SIGNAL: Issued 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.
Be safe everyone.
