MANILA -- The water level in Angat Dam is up by 3 meters due to Typhoon Ambo, state weather bureau PAGASA said Wednesday.

"Lumaki naman po 'yong elevation niya especially 'yong Angat [Dam]. So, pumasok si Ambo, nadagdagan siya ng 3 metro," hydrologist Ed dela Cruz told ABS-CBN Teleradyo.

"Bago natin maubos 'yang tatlong metro na 'yon siguro almost two weeks or ten 10 days bago natin maubos 'yon," he added.

Dela Cruz said the Philippines is expecting more typhoons next month, which will further increase water supply.
