• Bookmark This: A List of Flood-Prone Areas in Metro Manila
  • Nothing like #walangpasok announcements to let us know that, yes, the rainy season is in full swing. It shouldn't come as a surprise since the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration gave updates on the low pressure areas and storms that are coming our way, just before summer ended. In fact, we were warned that wet weather was going to take a turn for the worse sooner than we'd like--we've already experienced flooded thoroughfares and traffic jams.

    So to help you manage life this rainy season,  Metropolitan Manila Development Authority has released a list of flood-prone areas to watch out for in the National Capital Region. We suggest you keep this list on your smartphone. When in doubt, check this roster. You've been informed.
