Heavy rainfall warning up in Metro Manila, Luzon provinces

LAST POST ABS-CBN News Posted at Jun 11 2018 05:44 PM | Updated as of Jun 12 2018 07:01 AM MANILA (2nd UPDATE) - State weather bureau PAGASA early Tuesday raised heavy rainfall warning in Metro Manila and other Luzon provinces and cautioned residents of possible flooding.

In its 2 a.m. advisory, PAGASA placed Metro Manila, Rizal, Cavite, and Bataan under orange warning alert, where flooding is imminent.

Yellow rainfall warning was also raised over Zambales, Laguna, and Batangas. Flooding in low-lying areas may prevail over these areas.

Meanwhile, light to moderate with occasional heavy rains are expected in Bulacan, Pampanga, Tarlac, Nueva Ecija, and Northern Quezon, which may persist within 3 hours.

All thunderstorm advisories over Mindanao have been lifted. Residents, however, are still advised to continue monitoring the weather.

A southwest monsoon is still affecting parts of Luzon, PAGASA said.

Severe Tropical Storm Domeng, which grazed the country's northeastern coast over the weekend, was spotted 2,370 kilometers northeast of Basco, Batanes, packing maximum sustained winds of 90 kilometers per hour and 115 kph gusts.

PAGASA meteorologist Obet Badrina said Domeng is expected to dissipate in the following days as it moves towards Japan.

Moderate to occasional heavy rains are also being experienced over Cagayan, while light to moderate rains are experienced in Abra, Apayao, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, Kalinga, Ifugao, Mountain Province and Isabela.

Badrina added the weather will improve by Wednesday to Thursday.

Downpours on Monday have forced the cancellation of classes in some areas.
