ICYDK, the Metro Manila Shake Drill 2017, more popularly known as #MMShakeDrill2017, is happening today at 4 PM and everyone's expected to participate.
Because of this, traffic in EDSA will be stopped. There will be major drills in Guadalupe and Ortigas so traffic rerouting will be implemented, which means that after the drill, it's going to be a combination of payday, Friday, and shake drill traffic after.
It sucks, but drills like these are very important so we all know where to go and what to do should a 7.2-magnitude earthquake hit Metro Manila.
Instead of using your energy to complain about the atrocity that is the monster traffic, we've listed a few things you can do instead:
- Update your phone's wallpapers.
- Organize your notes.
- Keep yourself updated.
- Start a YouTube channel
