Drivers battle through flooded road after heavy rain in the Philippines


Footage shows drivers battling through a flooded road after heavy rain in the Philippines.

Onlooker Paul Dayang recorded the vehicles driving through the deluge in Sant Cruz, Davao Del Sur province, on May 14.

He said: ‘We don’t know when it will be fixed because every time it rains the road becomes like a big sea and many workers and business establishments are affected like me.’

The Philippines and other countries in Southeast Asia such as Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia are approaching their tropical monsoon rainy season. Soaring temperatures reaching 35 degrees Celsius are often followed by powerful tropical storms with thunder, lightning, rain and flash floods.
