San Jose, Bulacan

Angel Carlyn Garrido, a San Jose, Bulacan resident, called for rescue on Monday as floods in the area already surpassed the roof of their neighbor’s house.

“Wala [na rin] pong kuryente kaya po nakakatakot kasi baka biglang tumaas pa ang tubig eh wala na pong charge ang mga phone, baka hindi na po [kami] makahingi ng tulong,” she went on to say,” Garrido said.

(We do not have electricity, so we are scared that the water might suddenly rise. Also, our phones weren’t fully charged, so we may be unable to ask for help.)

Marikina City, Metro Manila

Meanwhile, in the flood-prone city of Marikina, Jojie Sevillena captured a video of water climbing up the streets as residents watched in the rain.

Residents also had to worry about the Marikina River, which reached the third alarm during Karding’s onslaught. Abet Cruz posted photos of the Barangay Nangka being overwhelmed with flood water.

While Typhoon Karding has left the Philippine area of responsibility, a trail of destruction marked its path. As of writing, eight people have been confirmed dead by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.

Meanwhile, Karding also caused P160.1 million worth of agricultural damage, said the Department of Agriculture.
