Torrential monsoon rains in Manila, Philippines have left at least 60 people dead. Rescue operations are now turning into clean-up operations.
"It's really an eyesore when we saw it from the helicopter. There will be no more rescue. It's not 'Operation Cleanup'," said civil defence chief Benito Ramos on the mass flooding. He went on to state that soldiers will be mobilized in coordination with local authorities to clear the debris (as reported by World News Australia and the Irish Independent).
These monsoon rains which began on Sunday has seen to the worst flooding the country's capital since 2009. More than half of the city of 12 million was submerged and schools, offices and other public buildings were closed for days.
