Typhoon ‘Inday’ Hits The Philippines, Results to Sever Flooding in Metro Manila
Due to the continuous heavy rains, the whole Metro Manila experienced extensive floods, which made a handful of streets unpassable.
The floods therefore resulted into a gridlock, derailing citizens from going to work, and classes getting suspended.
According to CNN, several streets in various cities in Metro Manila got submerged on floods, which prompted citizens to share the current situation via social media.
Authorities are now monitoring the flood levels, as well as the water level of the Marikina River, which rose to 16 meters earlier this morning. Residents who lived near the river automatically asked to evacuate.
Sources reported that residents can expect this trend of heavy rains over the weekened, but will see slight improvement tomorrow, Saturday, when typhoon Inday leaves the Philippine Area of Responsibility.
