Improved southwest monsoon causes flooding in parts of Metro Manila



MANILA – Floods were reported in parts of Metro Manila at the beginning of Monday as a result of persistent rains caused by the south-western monsoon reinforced by typhoon "Maymay" (international name Jebi).

In an advisory report, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority said that floods have been reported in the following areas from 4.50 am:

  • R. Papa both borders – Knee deep. Not passable for light vehicles
  • Moumento area – poured deep. Suitable for all vehicles
  • McArthur Highway both directions – poured deep. Suitable for all vehicles
  • Balintawak A. Bonifacio Ave under the bridge in a northerly direction – Goot deep. Suitable for all vehicles

The administration of the Philippine atmospheric, geophysical and astronomical services said that "Maymay" is somewhat weakened and now lies outside the responsibility of the Philippines.
