In an extensive list, Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) identified more than 100 flood-prone areas in Metro Manila.

“The information that we are telling the public is more of a precaution because you can always plan in advance so that when rainy season comes, youcan take alternate routes because you were informed of flood prone areas,” said MMDA Chairman Emerson Carlos in an interview with Bandila, as per an article published by ABS CBN News.
