As Onyok makes its way out of the Philippines, it leaves behind floods in several regions in the Philippines

MANILA, Philippines – As Typhoon Nona (international name Melor) exited the Philippine area of responsibility, Tropical Depression Onyok entered the country on December 16.

PAGASA, the state weather bureau, said flooding and landslides were likely to happen.

As of 8 am on December 19, 2015, Onyok had weakened to a Low Pressure Area (LPA) and all Public Storm Warning Signals had been lifted.

In its wake, Onyok left many parts of the Philippines flooded, particularly in the CALABARZON and CARAGA regions.

Magdamag na ang ulan hanggang ngayon di pa rin tumitila, tumba na lahat ng punong saging at baha na sa paligid. Lord…

The photos showed the water rising and branches strewn on the ground. Ogaitnas said banana trees had already fallen as the rain continued to pour.

In Siniloan, Laguna, Marlon Quintero Certifico took a picture of the river water rising to the point where it is almost at level with the walls.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council reported 3,752 people were served in 14 evacuation centers in the CARAGA region.

While Onyok has been labeled as an LPA, the NDRRMC said there would still be moderate to heavy rainfall which could trigger floods and landslides. –
