Filipinos have to brace for the worst as the amount of rainfall in the Metro has now surpassed that of Typhoon Ondoy (international codename Ketsana) in 2009 that killed hundreds and left thousands homeless.

Accumulated rainfall today (472mm in 22 hours) has now surpassed Ondoy's rainfall (455mm in 24 hours).

Rains are expected to fall non-stop until Thursday, August 9, 2012. Affected areas are as follows: Bataan, Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Laguna, National Capital Region, Pampanga, Pangasinan, Rizal, Tarlac and Zambales.

As of press time, 8 people already died from a landslide in Quezon City. Most bridges and even super highways were already impassable, leaving thousands stranded. The Red Warning signal remains raised by the Pagasa in the NCR Region.

In 2009 Typhoon Ondoy resulted in 464 deaths. A Whooping $100 million damage was caused by the typhoon, causing outbreak of diseases, destruction of homes, roads and bridges.
