Let's hope that this will not escalate to a stage that is similar to what he had last week. The monsoon rains caused heavy floods in Metro Manila and its adjoining provinces. Wherein, according to the latest news, the death toll has already reached 85. Take a look at this list of flooded areas prepared by the MMDA for an overview. Until now, about half a million of the families and individuals affected by last week's inclement weather are still confined in the designated evacuation centers.

Stay tuned to the latest news updates on tropical depression Helen!
