MANILA, Philippines—United Nationalist Alliance’s afternoon sortie in Quezon City Thursday was called off following the sudden heavy downpour in the city.

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.

Some UNA bets, such as Nancy Binay and Jack Enrile, did not mind the rain and getting wet and continued their journey to Roosevelt Avenue while others opted to withdraw.

At the rally site, UNA’s makeshift stage was a clutter torn tarpaulins, toppled loud speaker boxes due to strong winds and the rain.
