I was on my way, running late for work after turning the house upside down looking for my favorite hypoallergenic earrings, when “Whoa! Just what the hell happened to EDSA?”. There was a massive sea of water rushing on the Northbound lane along MRT Boni station. A lot of people were stranded on the MRT overpass, some were taking pictures using their cellphones and others were just curious as to why EDSA now looks like Espana street in front of UST after a light downpour.
Apparently it was caused by a busted pipeline of the Manila Water company. The pipe started leaking as early as 4:30 am and became a full blown fountain around 6 am causing heaving traffic and ankle high flooding along the highway. By around 9 am, the leak was put under control and I was kinda disappointed coz I was like, “Oh, asan na yung mga nagtatampisaw na bata?”.
