MANILA, Philippines?(UPDATE 2) Continuous rains Wednesday morning brought floods to the streets of Metro Manila, and traffic to some of the region?s major highways, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority said.

As of 11:30 a.m., the entire stretch of the Gil Puyat Avenue (formerly Buendia) in Makati has been closed to traffic because of flooding, said Ivy Vidal, communication officer of the Skyway Patrol Group.

According to Vidal, other roads like the west service road at Bicutan and Sucat are also flooded, but remain passable as of posting time.

As of 11 a.m., the westbound lane of España, particularly from Blumentritt to Antipolo, is not passable to light vehicles due to knee-deep floods, the MMDA Metrobase reported.

The Pasong Tamo-Magallanes area in Makati City is also not passable to light vehicles also due to knee-deep floods.

Meanwhile, gutter-deep floods are being experienced in the areas of Plaza Dilao-Osmeña, and Pedro Gil-Quirino-Osmena in Manila; Gilmore-N. Domingo and the Edsa-McArthur area, and the C-5 Lascano westbound lane in Quezon City; Pasong Tamo-Mayapis-Malugay, and Tayuman-A. Santos in Pasay City, the MMDA said.

Traffic is slow moving in the southbound and northbound lanes of Edsa, particularly in the areas from Edsa-Kamuning to Ortigas and Mandaluyong to Ortigas due to the traffic in the nearby La Salle Greenhills.

Traffic in the northbound lane of Edsa, particularly from P. Tuazon to Aurora is also slow moving due to potholes, MMDA said.

According to the Manila Police District-Tactical Operations Center, low-lying areas in the city went under water. As of 10 a.m. some areas, including Taft Avenue from United Nations to Quirino; Rizal Avenue; Palanca Street fronting Quinta Market; and Dapitan in Sampaloc were flooded. These areas, however, remained passable to vehicles.
