“The alert will be lifted as soon as Pagasa deems it safe to continue operations,” Miaa said. 

Miaa earlier explained that the alert is a safety measure taken to prevent any untoward incident from happening when flashes of lightning are prevalent in the immediate area and may endanger personnel, passengers, and even flight operations.
