The first level alarm first breached the 15-meter mark at 11:18 p.m., prompting the alarm in accordance with the city’s disaster risk reduction system.

Last Saturday, July 24, the city evacuated residents of high-risk areas as the river rose past 16 meters due to continuous rainfall caused by the southwest monsoon, or habagat, that was enhanced by Typhoon Fabian.
