Aside from evacuating its citizens, the city government also launched road clearing and rescue operations for those in dire need of help as Mandaluyong was battered by Karding.

The Mandaluyong City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (DRRMC) posted photos of the operations in partnership with other rescue service teams stationed in the city on their official Facebook page.

The city was previously placed under Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) No. 3 by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) at 11:00 p.m. on Sunday as the whole National Capital Region (NCR) braced for the typhoon’s onslaught.

Karding made landfall over Burdeos, Quezon at 5:30 p.m. where it weakened into a typhoon from super typhoon category and made another landfall in Dingalan, Aurora at 8:20 p.m.
