Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Francis Tolentino said he is resubmitting his proposal for a double-layered seawall on Manila Bay to shield Roxas Boulevard from massive flooding.

A strong storm surge inundated a large portion of the boulevard on Wednesday, with tons of garbage being dumped by the waves back to the baywalk.
