Solution

Decongest Metro Manila , overcrowded na kasi . Siguro , kung pwede rin
yung provincial rate na ipinatutupad in the nearby provinces i lift na para
ma encouraged yung iba na huwag nang sumiksik sa Metro , so less people .
Wishful thinking ba?

People should be more responsible with their garbage disposal and where they choose to be informal settlers.

i don think most people care about that. it's ironic, because these people can be the same people who will be affected by the floods.

i think it's time each house is given a trash can for free by the government.

They should have an education program in the schools, and ads. Some sort of hippy-like (not saying thats a bad thing) organization should pay for it.

hei there, i think wag na lang tayo magpost ng pics, coz alam naman natin lahat kung ano ang situation. & besides pag nakita to ng ibang foreign forumers, maapektuhan na naman ang image natin. ok, i-explain ko ulit ha, in other words, im not saying na magpost lang tayo ng magandang pics, but to be safe, para hindi na ulit tayo pagkaisahan ng mga foreigners, wag nalang natin ipost ung mga pangit na pics, cguro mga illustrations or ung pics na walang baha will do, ok?...peace

LOL Eriq.

It's OK if foreigners see, because lots of torpical big cities have flood promlems. Besides, let's not pretend MM is a flood-free utopia. :)

the problem with these floods is that, not that they come yearly, it's that it takes a damn long time for them to recede, a problem caused by bad drainage.

There's a big flood control project here in CAMANAVA area. They sealed off 3 out of 4 lanes of the R10 road connecting with C4 for the project. Looks massive. Hope it works.

Even without rain it floods in Navotas and Malabon during high tide. The government has been proposing a mega-dyke in that area for years, but so far, nothing much as happened. I think this mega-dyke should be a priority project.

And it almost always floods in Espana! They really need to do something about the flooding in that area. That road is very important as it is a major artery to the old business district and university belt.

I find the timing of this thread to be quite funny... the entire city just shut down a while ago due to flooding.

Hey, MM was on The Weather Channel, showing a Tamaraw FX stalled because of the water, which was at window-level. Other more taller SUV's (like a Trooper and a Pajero) passing it. You could see the skyline in the BG too.

Classes are suspended today, and also work due to the rains. It's not raining anymore though...

Another picture I'd like to share:



A police vehicle gives a free ride to stranded commuters in Espana, Manila. Metro Manila and its surrounding areas were hit by intense rain that almost shut down the city.

almost, floods are in Espana, Araneta Ave., parts of Manila, CAMANAVA (especially Malabon) Half of Malabon is said to be underwater, and Marikina. Even the expressways and Edsa were in floods during the early hours yesterday, but not anymore. PAGASA says that this was the heaviest rainfall this year with this statement: Metro Manila has experienced the heaviest rain this year with rainfall amounting to 39 millimeters of rain per hour compared with the average 7.5 mm, weather bureau Pagasa said Wednesday.

I think Cainta and Antipolo are also flooded.

But the houses in Rizal province are dangerous because there are always landslides everytime it rains hard.
Also, remember that the tragic Cherry Hills subdivision is located in Rizal.
