Tropical Storm Maring
These are photographs of the flood and damage caused by tropical storm Maring or Trami as it is known internationally. Maring filled the streets of Manila with knee-deep floods. As a result, people were stranded because the flood is preventing their rides from fetching them. Pedicab drivers came and took advantage of the situation. These drivers charged more more than they usually do but there were still people who are willing to pay. The victims of these unusually large payments were those who were trying to get home. This made elevated surfaces like those seen in the photographs seem like ports or docks for pedicabs.
