13 missing in flooded Calamba City barangays

Thirteen people have been reported missing in Calamba City, Laguna as Tropical Depression Maring pounded Calabarzon with heavy rains and strong winds.

A radio dzBB report by Robert Maico on Tuesday morning that search and rescue operations have been launched for the missing residents of Barangays Parian and San Cristobal.

The report said that the two barangays are located near a river, which had overflowed due to heavy rains brought on by the cyclone.

PAGASA said weather conditions in Calabarzon and Metro Manila will worsen after Maring's landfall in Mauban, Quezon on Tuesday morning.

Meanwhile, local authorities in Atimonan, Quezon have started the forced evacuation of residents due to the expected landfall of Maring.

A separate dzBB report by Peewee Bacuño said a large part of Atimonan is already under at least 12 feet floodwaters. —ALG, GMA News
