This is probably the worst flooding I’ve ever witnessed in the Sampaguita Capital of Filipinas since we moved here in 2004. So when the torrential rains weakened late this morning, I decided to take a walk (or should I say, wade) around the young city. It was a detestable sight.
And now my feet and legs are itching like mad.

‘Maring’ may turn into typhoon before heading to Taiwan — PAGASA4:31 pm | Monday, August 19th, 2013
MANILA, Philippines — Tropical storm “Maring” (international name Trami) may still intensify into a typhoon before it leaves the country’s area of responsibility on Thursday morning and heads for Taiwan, according to the country’s weather bureau.
Luzon would continue to feel the effects of the habagat (southwest monsoon) being enhanced by Maring, until Wednesday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Monday.
The weather bureau said the habagat dumped the most rain from Sunday morning to Monday on Cavite Province and on Manila in the National Capital Region.
