Motorists are advised to take alternate routes as several areas in Metro Manila remain flooded due to continuous rains.

The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) says it has activated eight teams to address traffic jams, floods, and rescue efforts.

The MMDA will likewise deploy vehicles to assist stranded commuters.

Meanwhile, MMDA chairman Francis Tolentino also appeals to billboard operators to bring down their billboards to prevent untoward incidents. – ANC Dateline Philippines, July 3 2012
