• Metro Manila spared of ‘Labuyo’ floods



    Despite being under storm signal No. 1, Metro Manila experienced no flooding on Monday.

    The Flood Control Information Center of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said it did not monitor flooding despite the heavy rains brought by Typhoon “Labuyo.”

    “So far no flooding other weather-related incidents on any major roads in the metropolis has been reported,” said Ramon Santiago of the Flood Control Information Center.

    The center has closed-circuit television cameras and flood monitoring devices installed in key areas of the metropolis to relay real-time information on flooded streets to MMDA headquarters in Makati City.

    Local governments, schools, and universities suspended Monday classes because of the typhoon.
