The river’s water level first breached the 15-meter mark before midnight, prompting the alarm in accordance with the city’s disaster risk reduction system.

On 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 Typhoon Fabian enhanced.
