Metro Manila descends to further wretchedness again as Mario's floodwaters settle in! #Philippines

Flooding all over Metro Manila, paralyzing the Philippines' premier city and many parts of Luzon has proven that not much has changed since supertyphoon Ondoy devastated the city on 2009.

As fast as the floods came flowing through the hinterlands' denuded mountains, the waters are now as draining at a snail's pace at best and at worst lingering and stagnating likely due to clogged drains, fouled up waterways and heavily silted rivers.
