State of Calamity in the Philippines

As of today, August 8, 2012, 5:00pm, Metro Manila and nearby provinces are still submerged due to heavy pour of rain. There is no typhoon but it was Hanging Habagat or Southwest Monsoon rain which brought calamity in the Philippine's capital region. Marikina River was again highlighted and people near the river already evacuated after the loud siren was rung to alarm the people. Marikina City and Pasig City governments announced that they are in State of Calamity. Cainta and San Mateo -municipalities of Rizal Province also declared state of calamity since they suffered the same fate.

Here are some pictures.

    sana ngayong tapos na ang election magawan naman ng solusyon para maiwasan na magkaroon na ng baha sa metro manila. hirap kaya kapag binabaha na loob ng bahay at di naman pwede iwan mga gamit.
