With no rains and the water level in its source of supply dwindling, parts of Metro Manila, the Philippine capital, are beginning to suffer from water shortage and rationing.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the state weather bureau, said La Mesa Dam, which supplies water to Metro Manila, has slipped to its lowest in 21 years and is expected to dip further during the next couple of months.

The decrease in the water level in La Mesa Dam prompted the east zone concessionaire Manila Water to cut supplies in some areas in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.
