Located in a hilly part of the metro, residents and local officials were caught unprepared by the rising flood. Greenpeace is calling on industrialized nations to put up an adaptation and mitigation fund for countries like the Philippines that are most vulnerable and least prepared to deal with the impacts of climate change.Locations:Central Luzon-Luzon-Manila-Metro Manila-Quezon City-Southeast AsiaDate:27 Sep, 2009Credit:© Greenpeace / Gigie Cruz-SyMaximum size:2336px X 3504pxKeywords:Climate (campaign title)-Climate change-Climate change impacts-Day-Floods-KWCI (GPI)-Men-Natural disasters-One person-Outdoors-Raining-Storms (climate change)-VehiclesShoot:Climate Typhoon Ondoy PhilippinesIn light of the extreme weather event that devastated Luzon in the past 24 hours, Greenpeace is reiterating its call for industrialised nations to put money on the table for adaptation, mitigation and forest protection in order to help countries like the Philippines that are most vulnerable and least prepared to deal with impacts of catastrophic climate change.Typhoon Ondoy (international code name Ketsana) dumped 334 millimetres of rain in the first six hours, the highest ever recorded rainfall in the Metropolis. The previous record was 341 millimetres over a 24 hour period 42 years ago. Ondoy submerged up to 80% of the city, and covered areas that never experienced flooding before, stranding people on rooftops and bringing death and misery to rich and poor alike. Even after the waters subsided, Metro Manila and the outlying regions were largely unprepared to handle the evacuees, the injured, and much less the contamination that the floodwaters brought.
