A water surge from Manila Bay forced the temporary closure of a portion of Roxas Boulevard in Manila.
On its official Twitter account, the MMDA said that the affected areas include the north and southbound parts of Roxas Boulevard between Quirino Avenue and Rajah Sulayman.
“Roxas Blvd southbound and northbound of Quirino-Rajah Sulayman is temporarily closed to traffic due to water surge,” the MMDA tweeted.
Motorists are advised to take alternate routes – those from the south using T.M. Kalaw Street, and those from the northbound part using Quirino Avenue.
The water surge also brought with it several tons of garbage that accumulated along Baywalk brought about by the typhoon Gener, with international name of Saula.
MMDA is proposing to build a higher and improved seawall to prevent the repeat of the said water surge.
