MANILA, Philippines – Torrential rains pounding the Philippine capital on Tuesday paralyzed traffic as waist-deep floods triggered evacuations of tens of thousands of residents and the government suspended work in offices and schools.

Malacanang immediately announced the suspension of classes and work in government offices in Metro Manila and nine provinces due to non-stop rains.

“Upon the recommendation of Pagasa and in view of the continuing inclement weather brought about by the southwest monsoon [Habagat], work in government offices and classes in college level in NCR [National Capital Region], provinces of Zambales, Bataan, Pampanga, Pangasinan, Tarlac, Bulacan, Laguna, Cavite and Rizal are hereby suspended today, 07August 2012,” the Palace said in its Memorandum Circular No. 33 signed by Executive Secretary Paquito N. Ochoa Jr.

The same directive, however, said that agencies “whose functions involve the delivery of basic and health services, preparedness/response to disasters and calamities, and/or the performance of vital public services shall continue with their operations and render the necessary services”.

Incessant downpours set off by the seasonal monsoon overflowed major dams and rivers in Manila and nine surrounding provinces and put authorities on alert. The death toll from last week’s Typhoon Saola, which battered Manila and the northern Philippines for several days, has climbed steadily to 51.

The head of the government’s rescue agency, Benito Ramos, said there were no immediate reports of new casualties early Tuesday after the rains pounded already saturated Manila for more than 24 hours.

Vehicles and even heavy trucks struggled to navigate water-clogged roads, where hundreds of thousands of commuters were stranded overnight. Many cars were stuck in the muddy waters.

The La Mesa dam, which supplies water to the capital of 12 million people, spilled excess water for a second time early Tuesday into the rivers flowing into Quezon city, a middle-class Manila suburb, as well as the neighborhoods of Malabon, Valenzuela and Caloocan, where several villages were submerged.

Along the swollen Marikina River, police were deployed to move more than 5,000 residents away from the riverbanks in what Vice Mayor Jose Cadiz said was an enforced evacuation. The operation started after the City Hall sounded the alarm bell.

The Philippine Stock Exchange in the financial district of Makati, which was also flooded, was closed Tuesday. Also closed was the U.S. Embassy along Manila Bay in the historic old city, which was drenched out last week when a storm surge pushed the water over the seawall.

“The embassy is closed today due to excessive flooding in the streets and concern for the safety of our employees and consular applicants,” Ambassador Harry Thomas Jr. said in an announcement.

The military, which is involved in rescue work, canceled several events due to the flooding, including an awarding of bounties to tipsters who helped troops capture al-Qaida-linked militants.

In 2009, massive flooding spawned by a typhoon devastated Manila and the surrounding areas and killed hundreds of residents in rampaging flash floods. The state weather bureau said the current flooding was not as severe but warned of more rainy days ahead.

Typhoon Saola was the seventh of 20 typhoons and storms expected to batter the Philippines this year.

        doon sila pinapunta sa public school sa tabi ng mga pari. kahit lugaw walang dinala ang mga pari. yung mga mayayamang kapitbahay ang nagdala ng pagkain. Sa Islam, kami po ay required magbigay ng bahagi ng aming kinikita sa charity. Okay lang kami lahat don.

Kung may hinaing ka sa RH at ayaw mo nito huwag mo ditong ibuhos yan dahil hindi ito ang tamang panahon para gawin yan. Ang kailangan nyo ngayon ay magkapit bisig at magdasal. tigilan ang rh rh bill na yan may oras para dyan. yan lamang po at isang magandang araw sa ating lahat.

      We can not control nature but we can control people who are destroy our environment. One is reducing our population because our environment is finite and one’s the carrying capacity of the area is obtain, all life including the people will die because no one can support it. . . In Europe, flood control control concept is not use anymore except for Highly Urbanized Areas and they are reverting to natural way of controlling the flood and the cause of it which is rain. . .

    Flooding is one of the nature way of cleansing the environment, it’s high time to ponders and how to protect our nature. Next time the nature’s wrath will do is to eliminate the one that is destroying the environment. . It’s time relocate to the provinces those people living in danger zone like rivers and flood basins. .

    HOW TO REDUCE or SOLVE FLOODING PROBLEM in Philippines.

    One reason why Metro Manila easily gets flooded is due to over congestion or over population. More buildings and houses are occupying an area of land causing water overflowing on the drainage, instead of water seeping or getting absorbed in to the ground. During heavy rain most of the water fron rains only flow to the drainage unto the canals, rivers and into the sea. Only a small percentage of the water is getting absorbed on the ground.

    The way to improve water seepage or water penetration thru the soil, is using ground water pit to collect rain water from roof gutters and and from surroundings. A pit with a considerable size, say 1sq meter by 2 meters deep, will hardly fill up even during heavy rains. Instead of allowing the water to flow to the drainage, why not collect then in to the collection pit. This will even help improve the underground water level. The more water absorbed by the soil, the more moisture it will contain which will help the trees survive during summer. The deeper the pit the better.

    If only all buildings, houses or apartments will have their dedicated water collection pit, then flooding in the streets of Manila, and cities will be minimized.  This solution to flooding is already implemented in cities in India. And it has been proven to be very effective in reducing fllooding. In my house I have my own water collection pit, and it never gets full even during heavy rain.

    Therefore my suggestion is :

    REQUIRE ALL BULDINGS IN METRO MANILA OR ALL CITIES THRU A CITY ORDINANCE TO HAVE THEIR OWN WATER COLLECTION PIT. THIS SHOULD BE A COMPULSORY REQUIREMENT BY THE CITY GOVERNMENT BEFORE GIVING BUILDING PERMIT.

    I hope the city administrators and planners will consider my suggestion.  It is a well-proven and effective and simple solution. Please forward my suggestion to MMDA or to City Mayors, or lawmakers.

    • Pedro Mateo

      This was practice in Eco-friendly building but in order to make it compulsory it should be reflected in the National building Code as one of the requirement in Building construction and to include that all parking areas shall be made of porous materials and not made of all concrete pavement to let the rain drain in the parking area. . 

  • Belekoy

    Most of those who died in these typhoon and continuous rains came from the poor sector, the homeless, the dispossessed, the informal settlers and those who live in squatter areas near rivers and lakes and low-lying areas. The government officials, led by President Aquino, wishes that they be relocated to settlements and other government housing communities. But had these leaders been clear in their pronouncements about the details of the relocations, clearly telling the people what the future holds for them, the affected people would have agreed to relocate and there would not have been deaths and victims in these natural disasters. But this government, for all its declarations of concerns for the poor, is actually composed of leaders and officials who came from the ruling class, thus their concern for the poor sector of our society is at best just a “display” that will lead to nothing at the end in assisting the poor. The poor will still face a “ravine” in their quest for a better life if they relocate, left hanging by the deliberate inaction of these government leaders in this administration of Aquino.

    It is because of the GREED of Wealth & Power that Metro-Greater-Manila has always suffered these floods, congestion.., pollution, etc.., etc.., etc.!
    People in the Provinces and rural areas flock to Manila in the belief that all the wealth & opportunities of the nation is siphoned there.
    This is one of the disadvantages of having a centralized government. It is now chocking in its own excretions.

What have you fanatical Muslims really contributed to Humanity, except for falsehood, treachery, wars, misery, and overpopulation? The Christians could have wiped you off the face of the earth 50 years ago, but because they are true to Christ, (Mohammed is a merely a plagiarist of Christ, merely infusing his Arab Nationalism, and infantile paganism to the religion), you are still around. You fear the liberation of sex since you would rather hide behind pretensions, but are exposed, as the truth always prevails.

    Unfortunately, there will be a lot damages in the aftermath of this storm. There has been and will be many victims to this calamity and especially from the poor and less fortunate who don’t have proper housing.

    I do hope the Administration properly assists these poor families who are affected. And I do hope the President not only talks about his care for the poor but also shows his care. The President doesn’t seem to mingle with the poor and less fortunate Filipinos. I’m not saying he necessarily has to have drinks with them but you rarely if not at all see the President in poor areas amongst the impoverished.

    As I’ve heard being said more and more now about the President…talk is cheap, action is preferred.

    Let us thank the visionary (False) leadership of Arroyo and even Estrada, for the present demise of the Philippine Nation. Simply and honestly put, instead of investing in the water infrastructure, which would have put thousands to work, brought sound engineering to serve all People to access clean water, management to control floods and droughts, these two instead have deceived and robbed the Nation blind and silly. The first warning was Ondoy, but the politicians failed to heed to the warnings, and here are the consequences of their sins. Let us act before things get even worse. Make those corrupt politicians return the stolen loot, and begin building a sound reliable water infrastructure so that these nightmares will be a thing of the past. For All of the Philippines, and not just Manila.

      Ondoy devastated much of Manila and Luzon in September 2009, or 9 months before GMA left the Presidency.  Mr. Aquino is already on his 25th month in the office…
      Now, try to decipher what I mean.

      • catmanjohn

        Gloria was too busy scheming her get away with the hundreds of millions of dollars, making sure Corona was placed properly, to cover her flanks. She had 9 years previously to address this problem. I was in Manila and Cebu 6 months before Ondoy hit, and could see the glaring neglect in the water infrastructure even then. Let’s be realistic in our assessment of the problem. President Aquino does have to take some blame, for his failure to prioritize this issue.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1017656404 Neb Ednocxe

    We must all realize that the real culprit behind the worst flooding that Metro Manila has seen in three years is the fact that a lot of Manilenos, especially squatters, are poorly disciplined when it comes to garbage disposal, and that the Metro was but suffering from the consequences of poor urban planning (i.e., not following the original Burnham Plan, which called for the retention of the creeks and esteros and building of canals because of Manila being a low-lying area). Ipagbawal ang pagtatapon ng basura, palayasin at ibalik sa kani-kanilang pinanggalingan ang mga squatter, at gibain ang mga illegal structures sa “missing” creeks and esteros and you’ll see the flooding problem somewhat solved.

  • KapitanBagwis

    After what we are experiencing right now and will experience more, after ONDOY and other storms and typhoons we experienced, the government must now make a no nonsense decision to implement the school year from September to June. Rain and the Southwest Monsoon and storms start from July to mid September. This will save our students from class stoppages and schools can be used as evacuation centers. Minimize accidents and deaths. It is a must for the government to change the school schedule.
