Metro Manila’s Flood-Prone Areas (as per the MMDA)

It has been about a month now in the rainy season this year, and the Metro Manila Development Authority just recently released a list of areas in the metropolis susceptible to flooding. So be mindful whenever there’s a heavy rain and to not find yourself at or nearby one of the areas listed below:

–  España-Antipolo-Maceda, Manila

–  P. Burgos-Manila City Hall vicinity

–   Osmeña-Skyway, Makati

–   EDSA-North Avenue, Quezon City

–   Don Bosco, Makati

–   C-5-Bagong Ilog, Pasig

–   West Service Road, Merville, Parañaque

–   East Service Road, Sales Street, Pasay

–   North Avenue in front of Trinoma, Quezon City

–   Gil Puyat Avenue Extension-Macapagal Avenue-World Trade, Pasay

–   EDSA-Camp Aguinaldo Gate 3, Quezon City

–   NLEX Balintawak Cloverleaf, Quezon City

Of course, there may be other areas not taken into account in this list for some reason, so consider that list as possibly incomplete.

In any case, the MMDA, in  a statement, assured the public that they have flood control personnel equipped with mobile pumps and other flood control equipment on standby “to help ease any burgeoning flooding problem.”

They’ve also stated that they currently working on addressing the flooding issue on the above-named areas, citing MMDA’s accomplishments in alleviating floods in some parts of the metropolis like in San Juan.

Then again, given the missteps the MMDA has made in recent years, it will be understandable for anyone not holding their breaths with those last two statements.
