CANIS

Also hier ist wieder alles ruhig, nachdem es 2 Tage Dauerregen und heftigen Wind bis Sturm gegeben hat (vor allem gestern Nacht). Wir hatten gestern so ca. 4 Stunden in unserem Gebiet keinen Strom (so von ca. 15 - 19 Uhr)

Aber ansonsten war es verhätnismässig ruhig und normal hier.

1). US EMBASSY FLOODED BY TYPHOON

The hitherto impregnable compound of the US Embassy in Manila was submerged Tuesday in waist-deep water, pushing more than 100 construction workers and employees of the world’s superpower to call for help.

As Pedring pummeled Metro Manila and wide swaths of Luzon, giant waves crashed against the sea wall behind the embassy and reduced a long stretch of Roxas Boulevard to an extension of Manila Bay.

At 9:30 a.m., some 100 men building an extension of the embassy building in the compound and 10 staff members of the diplomatic office sought help to leave.

Operatives of the Special Action Force, Manila Police District Public Safety Battalion (MPD-DPSB), MPD Special Reaction Unit and a contingent from the National Capital Region Police Office came to the rescue.

“It was not really an evacuation. It was more of a conveyance,” Superintendent Rogelio Rosales, the MPD-DPSB head, told the Inquirer.

He said that after the embassy workers were rescued from the compound, they asked to be taken to TM Kalaw Avenue, where they could safely take transportation to their respective homes.

All of the embassy workers had availed themselves of transportation by 11 a.m., but sentries remained posted at the compound’s gates.

“The embassy workers were frightened by the strong waves in Manila Bay and the continuous flooding in the area, so they sought help,” Rosales said.

He said the first responders were personnel of Barangay (village) 667 Zone 72, who brought in a fire truck to help the stranded workers out.

Rosales said that to his recollection, it was the first time the US Embassy was submerged in water and its people needed to be rescued from the compound.

He said such an emergency never took place during the passage of such momentous typhoons as “Ondoy” or “Milenyo.”

“The waves from Manila Bay were just too powerful. The high tide made it worse,” he said in Filipino.

Later in the day, the US Embassy announced that it would be closed to the public Wednesday due to the heavy rains brought by Pedring. It is expected to reopen Thursday.

The embassy said that American citizens in emergency circumstances should call the embassy switchboard (301-2000) for assistance, and that nonimmigrant and immigrant visa appointments for Tuesday and Wednesday would be rescheduled.

All affected applicants will be contacted and told of their new schedules.

The embassy also extended its sympathies to everyone affected by the typhoon.

2). Storm surge hits 5-star hotel; guests evacuated

MANILA, Philippines - As typhoon “Pedring” pummeled Metro Manila yesterday, waves as high as the coconut trees on the Sofitel’s back lawn washed out everything in its path, surging through the building’s famed Spiral Café on the lower level and prompting an evacuation of all hotel guests.

“Spiral is gone!” exclaimed an eyewitness, referring to the café with the most extensive buffet in town.

Eyewitnesses who asked not to be named said the evacuation was orderly, with no injuries or mishaps. They commended Sofitel general manager Goran Alecks for his calm but quick response to the onslaught of the wall of water on the hotel, which eyewitnesses said had left the structure “badly damaged.”

At the time the waves struck, the hotel had 65 percent occupancy.

Management billeted the evacuated guests in neighboring hotels.

The hotel guests seemed to have been part of the more than 4,000 people in Manila that had been evacuated due to the onslaught of the typhoon.

Local officials led by Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim ordered the forced evacuation of more than 1,000 families, or about 4,000 people, mostly from the squatter colonies near Manila Bay.

City Administrator Jesus Marzan said a total of 835 families had to be evacuated from Isla Puting Bato in North Harbor.

At least 300 families were moved out from the Baseco Compound, Sitio Lamayan, Parola Compound and Del Pan in Tondo.

Around 110 people, mostly construction workers, were rescued from the US embassy compound along Roxas Boulevard that was also inundated by the storm surge.

The storm surge also rendered both lanes of Roxas Boulevard almost impassable to vehicles.

The vicinity of Rizal Park fronting Quirino Grandstand went under chest-deep floodwaters.

The floodwaters, the heavy downpour and the strong winds also caused problems for motorists, who had to negotiate the roads littered with garbage and fallen trees.

The storm also forced power outages in Metro Manila, which officials said were caused by toppled power lines.

As power outage hit households in the entire Metro Manila yesterday, coffee shops were a hit as people braved the strong winds in search of power outlets for their gadgets.

Inside a mall in Quezon City, students and professionals filled coffee shops carrying their laptops, tablets and cellular phones to be plugged and recharged.

Some even brought with them extension cords to maximize electric connection and be able to plug in all their gadgets simultaneously.

A male law student, who had been transferring from one crowded coffee shop to another in search of an available power outlet, said he had to carry all his gadgets to be recharged.

The same was true for a Malacañang official, who was down with flu but had to leave home to have all his gadgets plugged.

When the female official checked on Twitter, a “tweet” from Meralco said power supply was down in almost all of Metro Manila.

This was the reason she thought the power outage could last a long time.

The idea that she could lose communication with her cellular phone about to go off forced her to go out and scout for a place with a power outlet.

Outside the same mall, ornamental trees lined up leading to one of the entrances were felled by strong winds.

Those that were still standing had to be supported by wooden braces.

Along EDSA, numerous billboards had to be taken down to prevent any accident that could be caused by the strong winds along the major thoroughfare.

Quezon City’s Department of Public Order and Safety chief Elmo San Diego said they responded to more than 30 calls to cut down uprooted trees and clear city roads.

San Diego said that in Fairview alone, they responded to calls of 18 uprooted or felled trees blocking major roads or in danger of falling on houses.

“We have pre-positioned our rescue teams and rubber boats in the barangays to make it easier for our teams to respond to emergencies,” San Diego said.

Hallo,

hatte vor am Montag nach Manila zu fliegen und dann nach Angeles zu fahren mit dem Taxi.

Wenn ich mir die Bilder und Nachrichten/Wetterberichte so anschaue (Nesat, Nalgae), dann frage ich

mich ob das eine so gute Idee ist.

Landen die Flieger da überhaupt in Manila?

Geht da ein Taxi nach Angeles?

Wie ist den die Lage so in Angeles??

Liebe Grüße

happym

.

Also Nesat ist bereits Richtung Vietnam/Laos unterwegs und

Nalgae trifft am Samstag auf phil. Festland (im Norden von Luzon) und verlässt es am Sonntag wieder.

Ich lande am Samstag in Manila und mache mir keine großen Gedanken,

falls der Flughafen gesperrt wird, landet das Flugzeug auf einem anderen Flughafen (z..B. Hongkong) und wartet dort,

bzw. startet erst gar nicht.

Also, auf den Bildern von James scheint der Taifun den Jugendlichen richtig Spaß gemacht zu haben.

Scheinen aber bestimmt die einzigen zu sein...

Gruß,

Hier ist momentan alles wieder normal und auch in Manila sollen die Strassen wieder alle befahrbar sein.

Wir haben in Angeles seit gestern Sonnenschein von leichten Schauern zwischendurch mal abgesehen.
