MMDA: Part of EDSA flooded, not passable to light vehicles

January 31, 2012 2:38pm
A part of Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) in southern Metro Manila were flooded Tuesday afternoon, after rain fell on parts of Metro Manila.

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said flood waters were as high as 13 inches at the corner of EDSA and Pasong Tamo Extension.

In a flood alert posted on its Twitter account, the MMDA said the corner of EDSA and Pasong Tamo Extension northbound was not passable to light vehicles.

Rain had fallen on parts of Metro Manila at noon Tuesday, with some areas having poor visibility.

But the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration maintained the rain was not due to a cyclone.

Instead, PAGASA said the rainshowers are caused by the southward surge of the Northeast Monsoon occurring over eastern sections of Northern Luzon. — KBK, GMA News
