MANILA, Philippines — The third alarm was sounded over Marikina River as its water level reached 18.o meters at 12:33 p.m. on Monday, according to the Marikina Public Information Office.

Karding made a second landfall in the vicinity of Dingalan, Aurora on Sunday, with maximum sustained winds of 175 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gustiness of up to 290 kph, according to Pagasa.

Residents near the river have been preemptively evacuated to the cities’ around 50 evacuation camps.

“The waters entered the low-lying areas and many residents have preemptively evacuated because of the memory of Typhoon Ondoy,” the Marikina PIO said in Filipino.

Ondoy claimed more than 700 lives in Metro Manila and other regions in 2009.
