There was no storm signal over Metro Manila on Thursday night.
But flash floods that brought back fearful memories of the 2009 killer Tropical Storm “Ondoy” hit various parts of Metro Manila, swamping entire city blocks and stranding thousands in the rush-hour traffic.
The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) reported waist-deep floods in Quezon City, specifically along Maria Clara St., Araneta Avenue and N.S. Amoranto St. due to the overflowing of Talayan Creek.
Honorio Lopez Blvd., from Tondo Hospital to S. De Jesus St., was submerged in 12 inches of flood due to high tide and rainshowers.
Imelda Ave. in Pasig was submerged in 19 inches of water.
MMDA advised motorists to avoid Northbound EDSA as gutter-deep flooding at P. Tuazon tunnel caused traffic to come to a standstill. Flood control units have been dispatched to area, MMDA said.
Gutter-deep flooding was also seen in Maceda, España in Manila.
The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) reported waist to chest-high floodwaters in Quezon City, mainly on Maria Clara Street, Araneta Avenue and Amoranto Street.
Rescue teams and rubber boats were deployed to rescue residents in Tatalon, Talayan-Araneta Avenue in Barangay Doña Imelda and Bagong Silangan in the city. Residents reported floodwaters up to five to six feet.
The corner of Maria Clara and Amoranto Streets, also in Quezon City, was also rendered impassable as the water reached heights of up to six feet or “lampas-tao,” Emerson Carlos, MMDA assistant general manager, said.
