Heavy downpour submerges vehicles in QC

The heavy downpour brought by a low-pressure area off Casiguran, Aurora inundated parts of Metro Manila on Monday night, catching pedestrians and motorists by surprise.

Aside from E. Rodriguez-Araneta Avenue and España Avenue corner Lacson in Manila, the intersection of Scout Tobias and Timog Avenue in Quezon City became a testing ground for some vehicles’ wading prowess.
