Video: Power Tower Falls in Philippines

A fire caused a power tower to fall in the Philippines. It was nothing like the Godzilla movies. 

​MANILA – The South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) management apologized for the heavy traffic near the Alabang northbound exit on Wednesday, after a nearby residential area caught fire.

SLEX had to close northbound and southbound Alabang viaduct to traffic for almost an hour because a transmission line collapsed while the fire was ongoing, the management said in a statement.

“Because of the imminent danger this situation posed to motorists, we closed both the northbound and southbound Alabang viaduct at around 9:10 AM to ensure the public’s safety,” said SLEX.

Annoyed motorists and commuters took to social media to express their rants about the heavy traffic on SLEX.
