Below you find a table of all dam water-levels. Aside the La Mesa dam, the IPO dam is very critical.
And water continues to pour down on Central Luzon and Manila.
– In Metro Manila traffic can stall at any time
– In Central Luzon roads may be interrupted by landslides
– Try to find a bed away from landslide prone zones and do not cross rivers if you do not need.
Tourists advice: If you need to catch a flight, go to the city of departure a day ahead. Otherwise you might not be at the airport in time.
