MANILA, Philippines — A thunderstorm advisory was released for Metro Manila and other areas in Luzon by the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) on Thursday.

The state weather bureau issued the bulletin at 12:25 p.m., saying that heavy rainshowers with lightning and strong winds are expected within the next two hours in Metro Manila, Nueva Ecija, Zambales, Bataan, and Rizal.


Pagasa said these conditions will also be experienced in the towns of San Jose in Tarlac; Porac and Floridablanca in Pampanga; Amadeo, Indang, and General Trias in Cavite; Calamba and Los Baños in Laguna; San Juan in Batangas; and Mauban in Quezon province.

Meanwhile, in a separate update released at 12:40 p.m., Pagasa said Catarman, Northern Samar and Partido in Camarines Sur will likewise experience moderate to heavy rains with lightning and strong winds within one to two hours.

Metro Manila has experienced torrential rains in recent days, due to a low pressure area (LPA) located 145 kilometers north of Laoag City in Ilocos Norte last Monday.

On Wednesday, Pagasa said they are monitoring three LPAs near the Philippine area of responsibility. After the rains on Wednesday night, several areas, including portions of EDSA, Quezon Avenue, were drenched in gutter-deep waters. /ee
