Streets along LRT-1 stations now passable
All streets along the Light Rail Transit line-1 (LRT-1), which were earlier submerged in flood waters, are now passable, the Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) said on Tuesday.
In an advisory, the LRMC management said that all 20 stations of the LRT-1 were now passable to all types of vehicles.
ADVISORY: As of 4PM, passable na po ang street level ng lahat ng stations ng LRT-1. Ingat po sa biyahe!

The management, however, advised its passengers to take extra precautions during their travel.
The LRMC earlier monitored gutter-deep to knee-deep floods in some of its stations as tropical storm ‘Henry’ intensified this morning.
The state weather bureau said that ‘Henry’ is now out of the Philippine area of responsibility, but monsoon rains would continue to persist over Luzon and parts of Visayas. /ee
