Incessant rains brought about by the low pressure area (LPA) caused floods in many parts of Metro Manila Thursday afternoon, according to the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA).
Jude Trinidad of MMDA’s Flood Control and Information Center (FCIC) said that between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m, the Shaw Blvd. tunnel, part of Epifanio Delos Santos Ave. (EDSA) in front of SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City, EDSA Ortigas, Estrella in Makati, and EDSA in Magallanes had seven inches of floodwaters but remained passable to all types of vehicles.
Pasong Tamo St. up to Don Bosco in Makati City had 21-inch floodwaters and became impassable by light vehicles.
However, as of post time, Trinidad said the floods had already subsided and all roads became passable again by all types of vehicles. PNA
