Urdaneta Dashcam Series 004 - The Morning after Typhoon Lawin

We drive around some areas in the city including Poblacion, San Vicente, Bayaoas, Dilan and Nancaysan.

Video taken around 7:30 am Oct. 20, 2016.

As seen in the video, many residents are up and about, getting to back to normal. We hope and pray that no more typhoons of this intensity hit our country this year, if at all.

Water  is 7.80 meters above Normal High Water Level

Binga Dam in Benguet has opened 6 gates while upstream Ambuklao Dam also in Benguet has opened 8 gates.

In effect, San Roque Dam is the catch basin for all this water.

As of 12:00 pm, 2 gates are now open at 0.5 meters each.
As of 10:00 am, 1 gate was open at 0.05 meters (PAGASA)
