MANILA, Philippines – The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has started cleaning up tons of debris along Manila Bay, a day after Typhoon “Pedring” whipped Luzon with its strong winds and heavy rains.

The debris, most of which were bamboo washed ashore from Cavite fishpens, will be brought to the Vitas Tondo Dumpsite, the MMDA said.
