Typhoon Ondoy/Typhoon Ketsana

Barangay San Antonio was one of the hardest-hit barangay in Quezon City by Typhoon Ondoy. The level of floodwaters from Halang Creek and a nearby stream reached as high as 30 feet especially in the areas such as West Riverside Street, Santiago Street, Guerrero Street, and Fernandez Streets. Many houses were destroyed by raging floodwaters and countless properties were damaged. The barangay council temporarily used the barangay covered court in San Jose Street as well as the Sinag-Tala Elementary School as an evacuation area. Massive relief operations for almost 2,000 affected families was launched in order to help the victims of the flooding. One drowning casualty was recorded/reported.
