MANILA, Philippines – Luzon continues to experience light to moderate rainshowers Sunday morning due to the southwest monsoon (habagat), as super typhoon Odette (international name Usagi) moves away from the country.

The Philippine weather bureau said Metro Manila, Cavite, Batangas and portions of Rizal and Quezon should expect light to moderate with occasional heavy rains.

Meanwhile, moderate to occasional heavy rains are expected to prevail over Pampanga, Zambales, Bataan and parts of Bulacan in the next three hours, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said in its 8:30 a.m. rainfall advisory.

Pagasa said Western Visayas and the rest of Luzon will have light to moderate rains and thunderstorms while Mindanao and other parts of Visayas will have cloudy weather with isolated rainshowers.

As of 4 a.m. Sunday, the eye of typhoon Odette was located 320 kilometers west of Itbayat, Batanes with maximum sustained winds of 160 kph.

Taiwan, Hong Kong and China have already set up precautionary measures in anticipation of the super typhoon.
