A woman on an improvised cart reacts as a passenger bus passes along a flooded street in Manila at the height of Storm Mario on Friday, September 19. Thousands of residents in low-lying areas were moved to higher ground, officials said, as flood waters rose quickly after the equivalent of half a month’s usual rain fell in six hours.
