From NDCC, 42 are confirmed dead and 20 others are missing as the Typhoon Ondoy unleashed his fury over the island of Luzon Saturday. Close to 280,000 families were affected mostly coming from the provinces of Metro Manila, Rizal, Laguna, Batangas and Quezon. Rescue teams are being assembled to rescue people who are stranded on their rooftops.
Most of Manila are flooded due to a heavy downpour this morning, the worst since the 1960's, lashed by Typhoon Ondoy (International codename Ketsana). Please pray as 42 are already feared dead or missing and more than 1,800 families from different areas in Metro Manila have been affected by this tragic event. A state of calamity has been declared to Metro Manila including 23 provinces.
