10 Cebu Pacific local flights canceled



MANILA, Philippines – Ten domestic flights of Cebu Pacific were canceled Monday as torrential rains whipped up by tropical storm “Maring” shut down the National Capital Region.

Radio reports said among the grounded flights of Cebu Pacific were the Manila to Caticlan, Manila to Naga and Manila to Virac routes.

The rains submerged some areas in Metro Manila to waist-deep floodwaters and making streets impassable to vehicles while thousands of people across coastal and mountainous northern regions fled to emergency shelters.

The national disaster agency and local officials reported at least three dead and several missing. Schools, offices, the stock exchange, courts and embassies were closed as the weather bureau placed metropolitan Manila — a sprawling area of 12 million people — under red alert.
