In the South, there is a report that a flood swept the northbound area of Villamor area. Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) reported that some portion of Commonwealth Avenue was impassable to light vehicles. Meanwhile dzBB report said that a portion of Quezon Avenue has been flooded.

The country's weather bureau said that this phenomenon during summer is very likely - water heats and dissipate fast resulting to the quick development of  cumulonimbulus clouds, which will later bring thunderstorms. While this maybe regarded as a normal occurrence, floods in the streets of Metro Manila is rather a sign of poor infrastructure planning and management.

MMDA thereby advised the motorists to use their signals and or lights properly, specially when driving in the rain.
