ANGELES CITY – Typhoon ‘Pedring’ has the worst flooding that ever occurred in Pampanga and Bulacan, said Mayor Edgardo “EdPam” Pamintuan as he described the flooding wrought by typhoon’s heavy rains.

The deep floodwaters are expected to be aggravated by Typhoon “Quiel” which is seen to further affect flooded areas in Pampanga, especially San Simon, Candaba, San Luis, Macabebe and Masantol.

Pamintuan said: “I saw it with my own two eyes. The whole stretch of the Candaba viaduct and more, as well as the Pampanga River is overflowing with water coming from Nueva Ecija.”

The mayor said that Calumpit in Bulacan, as he witnessed, was worst hit.

“San Simon, Apalit, Candaba, San Luis, Masantol, Macasbebe and Hagonoy are worst hit, too. Houses, up to the rooftop are submerged,” he added.

Pamintuan earlier noted that Angeles City was spared by Pedring and was minimally affected with no damages to roads and infrastructure.

Also on Saturday morning, the City Government, together with volunteers led by Auxiliary Bishop Pablo Virgilio David, conducted a massive clean-up of Sapang Balen Creek to avert possible flooding.
