Typhoon Ompong flooded Roxas Boulevard in Manila, making it impassable to light vehicles, the Manila Police District Tactical Operations Center said on Saturday.
The police said the water has started receding as the rain has stopped.
However, the city continues to be lashed by strong winds, whipping up big waves in Manila Bay.
Authorities said road conditions in other areas in Manila were normal.
Officials said 853 families or 2,560 people from Tondo were moved to the four-story evacuation center in Baseco, Delpan and the Delpan Sports Complex. Kim Malait
