    Myths & Legends of our New Possessions & Protectorate

  • The evidence left by the rampaging flood water will trace it back to its source and is difficult, impossible to erase. my simple analysis which of course can be right or wrong: direct rain that came from the sky, water that came from the hills of antipolo and quezon city (side of katipunan), the water that passes through marikina river from san mateo and montalban (which may have extra baon if water was released at lamesa and angat dam) are the obvious sources of water. now, consider the marikina-cainta-pasig valley as a pool with inlet and outlets. the above sources serves as our inlet. to maintain equilibrium (meaning no floodings), same size of pathway and volume outflow should also exist. aside from ability of the soil to absorb water, from google map, we saw pasig river which eventually leads to manila bay and the manggahan river which leads to laguna de bay through taytay as the outlets. from some news videos, i have seem that manggahan flood control was raised and water coming from marikina can not pass through and go to laguna bay. yesterday, BF admitted that some pumping stations (i believe are stratefically located in manila) were not working properly. so what resulted to these?
