Some areas in Central Luzon are experiencing floods due to the unceasing rains caused by Tropical Storm Ramil since last November 1.

According to the Office of the Civil Defense, low-lying barangays in San Miguel, Bulacan are among the areas that are experiencing severe floods. The bridges connecting some towns in Pampanga, Bataan, Olongapo City, and Aurora are also impassable.

According to Dingalan, Aurora Mayor Sherwin Taay, since yesterday, the temporary bridge in his municipality started to weaken due to the strong water current.

Currently, some residents are staying in evacuation centers managed by the local government. Most of the evacuees came from cemeteries after visiting the graves of their loved ones.

Meanwhile, some schools in Aurora, particularly Dipaculao and Mariao Aurora, have already suspended classes.
