While Tropical Depression "Josie" approached the country on July 21, two previous storms Ampil and Son-tinh enhanced seasonal southwest monsoon, further worsening flooding and causing floods and landslides which affected a total of 728 003 people and killed at least 5.

The floods affected 585 villages in 7 regions, according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).

On the same day (July 21), Dagupan City in Pangasinan was placed under a state of calamity due to massive floods which affected 32 barangays, forcing evacuations.

Major roads experienced flooding in some parts of Makati City, particularly in Buendia, in the main business district.

Authorities urged residents living in hazard areas of Marikina City to prepare for forcible evacuation as waters in the Marikina River rose to dangerous levels.

Angat and Bustos Dam in Central Luzon continued to release water, aggravating the flooding situation in the areas of Meycauayan, Marilao and Calumpit in Bulacan.
