Rainy season is here and with it comes the hassle of commuting. From June to July—even until November, people will experience more train breakdowns, more traffic jams, and worst of all, heavily-flooded roads. It’s best to avoid flood-prone areas if you don’t want to be stranded on the road hungry and soaking wet.

Traffic in Metro Manila is in its worst state when it’s flooding, when it’s a Friday, and when it’s a payday. We all expect it and we prepare for it by leaving work early or by taking alternate roads. Flooding, however, doesn’t only affect traffic. It also affects vehicles–it can damage cars and make it unusable.

Avoid such hassle by being a wiser driver and a smarter commuter. Below is a list of flood-prone areas in Metro Manila and nearby provinces:

If you plan to drive even when it’s raining, apps like Google Maps and Waze can help you navigate past flooded roads. However, traffic may also be worse during these times. Always be armed with information on seasons like these.

PAG-ASA’s Flood Watch[2] can help you keep track of areas susceptible to flooding, including flood-prone areas in Metro Manila. Make sure to be updated on the weather forecast in your area. Tune in to your favorite news outlet to get the latest weather update or set up a Google News alert.

How Can You Be Ready?

Sometimes, information is not enough. You have to be ready and resilient to survive flooding and other unexpected disasters on the road.

One, make sure that your vehicle has car insurance. This will secure you financially in case your car gets damaged from floods. Also, before leaving home or work, check your car from top to bottom, inside and out. Remember BLOWBAGETS? Yes, that’s important.

It’s also a great idea to keep a bag with extra clothes, toiletries, slippers, and a power bank in case you get stranded. Of course, don’t forget to bring a jacket and umbrella! You need these the most with or without flooding.
