Fresh flooding has hit about 30 towns in the northern Philippines, sending residents fleeing to rooftops and scrambling for safety, Pangasinan provincial Vice Governor Marlyn Premicias said Friday. The floods came after dams released excess water from recent heavy rains. Premicias said that she was getting frantic text messages from residents asking to be rescued. The San Roque dam released water along the Agno River on Thursday night, inundating 30 out of 46 towns in the coastal province. Forecasters said Tropical Depression Parma was still lingering off the northeastern coast, dumping rains overnight.
