The current El Nino phenomenon is now taking its toll on Angat Dam as its water level continues to drop.

According to PAGASA, the water level in the said dam is now at 196.5 m and there is a possibility of it going lower to 180 m by June.

PAGASA is warry that if the water level continues to fall, they have to cut water allocation in irrigation and water supply in Metro Manila.

The weather bureau added that even if we have rain in the coming days, it would still not be enough to increase the water level in the said dam.
