from the Recent Storm
Will Make You Miss the Sun
By Therese Aseoche
By now, we’ve gotten used to the rain washing the dirt and grime of Metro Manila, but none of us were prepared for the sudden downpour last week that caused traffic jams, flash floods, and huge crowds stranded at terminals.
Here are photos and videos documenting that horrible evening that will make you yearn for hot summer days once again.
8. This crowd of waiting passengers at SM North

It looks like a scene from an apocalyptic movie.
7. Honestly, you’d be lucky if you weren’t at SM North last night
6. Or at any part of Quezon City for that matter
5. When the orange barriers come alive

2. Then again, you get #aesthetic shots like this one
Grabe yung baha sa España, amp mapapamura ka nalang talaga. Umabot knee/leg deep yung baha. We had to walk an hour through filthy flood waters to get home.#ThisIsPhilippines pic.twitter.com/XuhDSlbBFE
