MANILA, Philippines — Parts of Luzon, including Metro Manila, will still continue to experience rains due to the southwest monsoon and Typhoon Fabian which has maintained its strength as it moves closer to Miyako Islands in Japan, the state weather bureau said Friday.

Fabian was estimated at 530 kilometers northeast of Itbayat in Batanes, maintaining maximum sustained winds of 150 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 185 kph, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said in its bulletin.
