4 dead from ‘Maring’

FOUR persons, including a baby boy, died yesterday from tropical depression “Maring” which flooded a number of areas in Luzon.

Affected by floods were Quezon City, Manila, Pasay, Parañaque, Pasig, Taguig, and Mandaluyong.

Floods subsided at around 5 p.m., according to the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority.

Maring made landfall in Mauban, Quezon at around 9 a.m. yesterday and moved to Laguna, Rizal, and Metro Manila, which caused massive flooding in these areas, said weather forecaster Sheila Reyes.

If Maring does not change direction and speed, it will leave the Philippine area of responsibility tonight or early tomorrow.

As of 4 p.m. yesterday, Maring was in the area of Bacolor, Pampanga.

It had maximum sustained winds of 60 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gusts of up to 100 kph. It was moving west northwest at 15 kph.

Reyes said cloudy skies with light to moderate rains are still expected in the western sections of central and southern Luzon, including Metro Manila, this morning due to the outer cloud bands of the tropical depression. Weather in these areas will slightly improve this afternoon as Maring continues to move away from the country’s landmass.

As of 5 p.m. yesterday, warning Signal No. 1 remained hoisted in Metro Manila, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Northern Quezon incl. Polillo island, Southern Aurora, Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Tarlac, Zambales, Bataan, and Pangasinan.

Reyes said typhoon “Lannie” (international name: Talim) was still not seen to make landfall inside the country, and will only pass near extreme northern Luzon.

As of 3 p.m. yesterday, the eye of the typhoon was some 720 km east northeast of Basco, Batanes, packing maximum sustained winds of 125 kph and gustiness of up to 155 kph. It was moving west northwest at 22 kph.

Lannie is expected to exit tomorrow.

Classes were suspended yesterday in all levels in Metro Manila, Bataan, Cavite, Batangas, Laguna, Quezon Province, and Rizal yesterday. Some local government units also suspended classes in all levels in Angat, Bocaue, Hagonoy, Malolos, Marilao, Meycauayan, Norzagaray, Obando, and San Jose del Monte, all in Bulacan. In Pampanga, classes were suspended in all levels in Angeles, Guagua, Mabalacat, Magalang, Mexico, Minalin, Porac, and San Fernando.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council confirmed two of the deaths, that of Justine Pondal, 14 and his elder brother, Jude, 17, both of Barangay Dolores in Taytay town, Rizal.

The two died after their house was buried by a rain-induced landslide that occurred at around 4:30 a.m. Their mother, Judith, suffered a fractured left hand and is confined at the Taytay Emergency Hospital.

Maj. Gen. Rhoderick Parayno, commander of the Army’s 2nd Infantry Division, said a third fatality -- a three-month old baby -- died in another landslide in Barangay 11 in Lucena City around 10 a.m.

Citing a report from the Army’s 80th Infantry Battalion, Parayno said the riprap of the Mt. Carmel Hospital collapsed due to continuous rains, causing the landslide that buried three houses.

Parayno said responding workers were able to rescue 12 persons, who were brought to a hospital where the boy died upon arrival.

A military report said 43-year-old Dennis Oreta died after he was electrocuted inside his house at the Amarante compound in Barangay Tagapo in Sta. Rosa City in Laguna at around 8 a.m.

The NDRRMC could not immediately confirm the death of the baby boy and Oreta.

NDRRMC spokesperson Romina Marasigan said local officials have ordered preemptive evacuation from landslide-prone areas but some residents refused to leave.

Marasigan said the agency received reports of flooding in Quezon, including   Pitogo town where 22 bus passengers were rescued.  

Marasigan said the mayor of Calabangan town in Camarines Sur and his driver abandoned their vehicle in Pitogo town due to flooding. She said the two took shelter in a safe area and are accounted for.

Marasigan said evacuations were implemented in Quezon, Rizal and Batangas but she could not immediately give figures. 

Parayno said some roads in Atimonan, Plaridel, Gumaca, Lopez, all in Quezon, were not passable to vehicles due to floods and landslides. He said the province also experienced power outage. – With Evan Orias, Angela Lopez de Leon and Christian Oineza
