Tropical storm Maring (international name Trami) caused record high floods in Metro Manila and nearby provinces in the Philippines which left 8 people dead, 41 injured, and 4 missing.
According to a government report , 125,348 families (602,442 persons) were affected by the storm. As of August 20 in the evening, 40,837 persons are still sheltered in 198 evacuation centers. The flood made 65 major roads impassable. About 415 areas in 68 municipalities/cities recorded flood cases. A total of 162 flights (59 international and 103 domestic) have been cancelled due to the storm.
