Pagasa, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration, issued intense rainfall warning over Metro Manila on Tuesday, August 26, as a low pressure area (LPA) persists over larger parts of Luzon.
Pagasa raised an ‘orange’ level warning in Metro Manila, Cavite, Batangas, Bataan, Rizal, Laguna and Quezon and warned that floods may ensue over the said areas which would experience 15 to 30 millimeters or rain per hour or four to eight gallons of water per square meter.
Zambales, Bulacan, Pampanga, Tarlac and Nueva Ecija are under a heavy rainfall warning.
University of Santo Tomas, University of the East Manila, University of the East Caloocan and Perpetual Help College Manila suspended their classes due to anticipated floods.
Residents and local disaster councils were advised to be alert, take all necessary precautions and monitor updates on the weather disturbance.
Senior weather forecaster Buddy Javier said the LPA was not expected to develop into a tropical cyclone.
