Floods cripple Metro Manila as rains continue for third day 20-Aug-2013

Schools, government offices, and many private companies in Metro Manila were closed for the second consecutive day as torrential rains accompanying Storm Maring caused flooding throughout the metropolis.

 
For many parts of Luzon, it has been raining for the last three days. But on Tuesday morning, according to Project Noah's most recent rainfall map, the rain has stopped in much of Luzon, including Cavite, Laguna, and Batangas. But torrents still fell in Metro Manila.
 
Persistent rain has caused floods in many main thoroughfares as the southwest monsoon enhanced by Tropical Storm Maring (Trami) continues to ravage Luzon, trapping people in homes and vehicles and stranding them on the streets.
 
Both South Harbour and North Harbour (ICTSI) in Manila are having continuous operations today (except for the bulk cargo operation in South Harbor). However in view of the bad weather, movements are slower due to the flooding.
 
There are manpower shortages with staff unable to reach work, but the terminal management are trying their best to address the problem as there are backlogs of shipments that need to be cleared from Customs today. Haulage truck movements are also affected by the flooding at the entrance of the port. 
 
Operations at the Harbour Centre where most of the bulk cargo is discharged have also been affected by the flooding. There are two small vessels berthed at the southern tip of the berth that have been ordered to shift to anchorage for safety reason and vessel movements (docking/undocking) are temporarily suspended until the weather improves. Vessels presently at berth continue with their cargo operations except those with weather sensitive cargoes.
