Bustos dam overflows

Heavy rains dumped by typhoon Ulysses on Wednesday caused Bustos Dam to overflow, aggravating flooding in the coastal towns of Calumpit and Hagonoy.

The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO) said the Bustos dam water flow from its rubber gates was measured at 58 cubic meters per second.

Calumpit and Hagonoy are considered as catch basin of receding floodwater from Pampanga and Nueva Ecija.
