Marikina River rises to 15 meters; first alarm raised
The first alarm has been raised at the Marikina River amid incessant rain brought by the southeast monsoon that is being enhanced by Tropical Depression “Henry,” the Marikina City government announced Tuesday morning.
The Marikina River water level reached 15.0 meters as of 9 a.m. Once the water level reaches 16.0 meters, residents would be notified to evacuate to designated centers.
Classes in all levels in the city for both public and private schools have also been suspended by Marikina City Mayor Marcy Teodoro due to heavy rain.
