MANILA, Philippines — The state weather bureau on Friday morning alerted the public on possible flooding in low-lying areas as it issued a yellow warning in parts of Southern Luzon.

“Moderate to heavy rainfall was observed over Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon and most likely to continue for the next three hours,” the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said in its official Twitter account at 8 a.m..

Flooding is possible in low-lying areas and those located near the river channels, it added.

Meanwhile, light to moderate rains were forecast over Metro Manila, Aurora, Bataan and Bulacan while occasional light to moderate rains were seen over Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Zambales and Tarlac.

In the rainfall warning system, Yellow indicates 7.5 to 15 millimeters of (heavy) rains.

The rains are said to be caused by the northeast monsoon.

Pagasa also advised local disaster agencies to  take precautionary measures.

    dito sa looban (laguna) walang baha… kc, sa pamumuno ni kaksaker padre dumbasso,  nagdasal ang mga kabayang flip gung gongs para lumihis ang bagyo…

    epektib… ni ‘sang patak na ulan, wala…

    • boypalaban

      kaso di epektib sa tulad mo…di naalis tagas mo….musta nga pala bentahan ng shabu diyan? mura lang siguro…lakas tama ka palagi e…

    Wow…mabuti pa ang Luzon huh may Yellow warning. Mindanao do not have up to this time na halos mag damag na ang ulan. You will only know na may baha sa isla kung lubog na ang maraming barangay sa apektadong lugar. Well, hindi lang sa Luzon may botante at sa panahon ni Noy may maraming baha sa Mindanao, bakit kaya? Is too much rain and floods a blessing? Ask the PNP chief as he was quoted after the Atimonan rubout that it was a blessing for the PNP.

    When I first saw the headline…I thought it was a warning that the LP Party is coming….Nonetheless, flooding or the LP Party, the local people need to take precautionary measures.

    KAWAWANG MGA ANTI-PNOY, WALA NG MAIBATONG ISSUE, SO MISERABLE!

    para walang gulo, at walang pulitika-pulitika sa maaring sakuna, gawing warning level numbers.

    ang babaw naman para gawing pulitika pa ang magbigay babala sa mamayan.

    the welfare of the people is the responsibility of the state and not because of politics.
