Tweeters share photos of Flash floods in Metro Manila

UpdateMetro Manila is now signal number 1. @kuyakim_atienza says “Expect rainy luzon weather till wednesday. Bebeng stays inside Philippine Area of Responsibility until wednesday afternoon. Visayas improving weather.”

I started to see reports coming in from Twitter. I knew with that amount of downpour, flood waters would be inevitable.

I asked @mmda if there were reports of flood at around 3:30 PM. There weren’t yet. The first tweet came at 3:45

Flood Update: as of 3:48 PM, EDSA Megamall NB; gutter deep, EDSA Ortigas Robinson; gutter deep. #mmda

@dost_pagasa reported that “The outer spiral of TS “BEBENG” brings rainshowers and thunderstorms over Metro Manila area.” which probably caused this sudden downpour. Apparently, Metro Manila is now signal number 1. Here is a List of regions under signal number 1 and 2 are:

Storm signal no. 2:
Isabela, Quirino, Aurora, Nueva Ecija, Northern Quezon, Polillo Island, Nueva Viscaya and, Camarines Norte.

Storm signal no. 1: Catanduanes
Albay, Burias Island, Camarines Sur, Southern Quezon, Marinduque, Batangas, Laguna, Cavite
Rizal, Bulacan, Bataan, Pampanga, Tarlac, Zambales, Pangasinan, La Union, Benguet, Ifugao
Mt. Province, Ilocos Sur, Kalinga, Cagayan and Metro Manila.

Twitters shared photos as they got stuck in traffic. Here are some of the photos curated in Twitter
