Stormy Weather: The Wrath of Maring

Pati Langit Umiyak
By N Mark Castro

Manila was brought down to its knees yet again with torrential rains that submerged some areas in waist-deep floodwaters and making streets impassable to vehicles, while thousands of people in northern regions fled to emergency shelters. Annually, the Philippine archipelago is visited by 20 tropical cyclones in a year, making it one of the most storm-battered countries in the world.

Here are some of the pictures available on the net and collated for your reference.

Stay safe everyone!

Heavy rain in the Philippine capital Manila forced the closure of government offices, schools, banks and most private companies on Monday.
