Online Resources for Marikenos on Typhoon Mario

With Typhoon Mario's amount of rainfall hugely affecting Marikina City, Mayor Del De Guzman declares the city in a state of calamity. Residents in surrounding areas of Marikina River were issued a force evacuation as standard protocol once Marikina River reaches critical level.  As of 5pm today, Adrian Ayalin reports current river level at 19.8 meters, which is above the 17 meter critical level.

The sudden flash floods experienced prompted some Marikenos to compare Typhoon Mario with 2009 Typhoon Ondoy.  PAGASA recorded 268 mm of rainfall in the past 12 hours as compared to Typhoon Ondoy's 455 mm in a 24 hour time frame and notes that their forecast shows that Typhoon Mario will not likely achieve the same amount.

To assist Marikenos, here are some online resources available:
