Yesterday, July 13, tropical cyclone "Basyang" ravaged Metro Manila, releasing 30-60 kilometer-per-hour winds that would snap several power lines, leaving the metro and several provinces, in darkness.
Until today, July 14, classes from elementary to high school levels are still suspended due to heavy rains and flood. Only 20 percent of Metro Manila's electricity has been restored. Cellular phone users subscribed to Globe are experiencing network failure. Commuters are stuck in traffic; MRT and LRT lines were shut down earlier today due to power outage.
