The Marikina City government has ordered a forced evacuation of residents along the Tumana River as water level there is now at critical level.

Mayor Marcy Teodoro told ANC several families have been moved to evacuation centers where equipment and relief supplies have been pre-positioned.

Teodoro said they are ready to help the displaced residents but they may need more assistance as the rains are expected to continue. – ANC, World Tonight, Aug. 13, 2016
