Orange rainfall alert raised over Metro Manila, provinces - ABS CBN News

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) - State weather bureau PAGASA early Tuesday morning raised an orange rainfall alert in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.

This, amid rains spawned by the southwest monsoon (habagat) that has been made more intense by Tropical Storm Maring.

PAGASA, in an advisory issued 2:45 a.m., said moderate to heavy rains were observed over Metro Manila, Bulacan, Rizal, Quezon, Occidental Mindoro, Pampanga, Zambales, Bataan, Batangas, Cavite, Laguna and Tarlac for the past 3 hours. 

It added that the weather is expected to worsen over the next three hours, with heavy to intense rains foreseen in Metro Manila, Rizal, Bulacan, Zambales, Bataan, Pampanga, and Occidental Mindoro.

PAGASA said moderate to heavy rains are also expected over parts of Cavite, Laguna, and Quezon for the next three hours. 

"Flooding is threatening," the weather bureau warned.

At least three people have died after torrential rain engulfed parts of the main island of Luzon, including Metro Manila, where neck-deep water swept through homes forcing thousands into emergency shelters.

Schools, government offices and the stock exchange were closed as a red rainfall alert was raised in the morning -- the highest level of a warning system in which widespread floods are predicted.

Classes remain suspended Tuesday in many areas in the metropolis and nearby provinces.
