Once again, Taft Avenue, particularly the area near United Nations Avenue, fell victim to flooding as super typhoon Egay wreaked havoc on Luzon with strong winds and relentless overnight downpours.

The knee-deep waters (see featured images) had a severe impact on commuters, whether they were attempting to board jeepneys or take the Baclaran-Monumento Light Rail Transit train. The roads leading to the Taft Ave.-UN Ave. LRT Station was completely submerged due to the heavy downpour brought on by the super typhoon.

According to the state weather bureau, Pagasa, another typhoon is forecasted, and it may hit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Sunday.
