To all Calamba residents, be aware. This is the number to call in case you need help in anticipation of Typhoon Pepeng. Although no storm signal is raised in Laguna, being within the Laguna Lake area poses a serious threat to life and property should the lake overflow. We are only half a meter away from breaking the record of 14.5m of water level in 1919.
Edgar Manda, head of the Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA), said that as of Thursday night, the lake is almost 14 meters deep – half a meter away from the bay’s highest recorded level of 14.5 meters measured in 1919.
He said the water level in the bay could further rise once typhoon “Pepeng” makes landfall on Saturday, Oct. 3.
Manda said residents living near Laguna de Bay, especially those affected by the floods caused by “Ondoy,” are advised to relocate immediately.
“Delikado ito in a sense that those living around 12.5 meter elevation and the next layer, papasukin na sila,” he said. – GMANews.tv
