Incessant downpours set off by southwest monsoon, enhanced by a low pressure area (LPA) over China, overflowed major dams and rivers in Metro Manila and nine surrounding provinces and put authorities on alert. The death toll from last week's typhoon “Gener” (international name: Saola), which battered Manila and the northern Philippines for several days, has climbed steadily to 51.
These are some of the photos shared on social networking sites regarding the flood brought by heavy rains:
