The MMDA is constantly updating the traffic situation along major roads via InterAksyon.com's Traffic Navigator. Click and save this link for real-time monitoring of flood and traffic situations along Metro Manila's major thoroughfares.

Continuous rains have flooded many parts of the metropolis and nearby provinces, prompting the evacuation and rescue of stranded residents. Rising waters and persistent floods have also caused many roadways to become inaccessible and impassable.

Here are some of the latest information we've gathered regarding closed and impassable roads. We will update the list as we get confirmation. Please check back often.
