MANILA, Philippines—The state weather bureau re-issued a red rainfall alert in Metro Manila and several provinces in Luzon at the first hour of Monday.

With the red alert, severe flooding is expected as heavy to intense rains continued to affect Metro Manila, Bataan, Zambales, Bulacan, Pampanga, Tarlac, Rizal, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas and Northern Quezon for the next three hours, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said at 12:10 a.m.

Moderate to heavy rains were also monitored over Nueva Ecija and the rest of Quezon.

The incessant heavy rains were caused by the southwest monsoon (hanging habagat) enhanced by tropical storm Maring (international name: Trami).

Earlier at 9 p.m. Sunday, Pagasa issued the red rainfall alert in Metro Manila and the provinces of Bataan, Zambales, Bulacan, Pampanga, Tarlac, Nueva Ecija, Rizal, Cavite, Laguna and Batangas.
