Most of Manila under water after heavy rains
MANILA FLOODS. Heavy raining has flooded the Philippine capital Manila. On Wednesday, 800,000 people were affected according to news reports. 60 percent of the mega-city, with 15 million inhabitants, was reported to be under water, the AFP stated.
“Some roads are like rivers. People need boats to move around. All roads and alleys are flooded”, the Philippine civil defense chief Benito Ramos said.
International aid on Wednesday brought food, water and clothes to the affected people in Manila. Meanwhile, schools and stores were closed due to the severe weather that has claimed at least 64 lives.
