Locals move jeepney trapped in flood during Tropical Storm Kompasu in the Philippines
Locals helped move a jeepney trapped in flood as Tropical Storm Kompasu battered the Philippines on Monday killing at least nine people.
Footage shows the young men trying to dislodge a piece of wood that prevented the vehicle from moving in the shin-deep flood in Paranaque City on October 11.
Resident Roseanne Porcalla said: ‘I was shocked and I didn’t expect the water to rise like that. Many jeeps were also damaged while passing through our area.’
Kompasu – locally named typhoon Maring – has intensified into a severe tropical storm on Monday morning, state weather agency Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration said.
Storm Signal No. 2 has been raised in nine areas in the archipelago’s northern island, Luzon.
