The water flows into the Zapote bridge on the border of Bacoor and Diego Cera Ave. covered by Las Piñas.

But until dawn, the water gradually subsided.

Some youths even offered to cross motorcycles in their carts. Others, on the other hand, trampled people into the part of Bacoor City, Cavite.

The water also entered several subdivisions in Barangay Pulanglupa Uno, such as Perpetual Village, Meritville, Kalikasan Homes, and Mapayapa Village.

The water reached a foot deep in the roads, but in the courtyards, it reached beyond the knees.
