There were also reports that hailstones the size of a corn grain rained down in some parts of the city.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said thunderstorms hit some parts of Metro Manila, including Quezon City.
The rain came down around 4 p.m. as the group’s motorcade rolled along the first district of Quezon City.
