Elephant in the room

The silver lining is that “Mario” wasn’t as bad as “Ondoy.” Unnerving as the sight of Metro Manila turned into “Waterworld” was—you could see that in stark relief in aerial photos—Mario dumped only half as much rainwater as Ondoy. Although tell that to the residents of Marikina and Cainta, many of whom were driven out of their homes when the floodwaters rose.
