Tropical storm “Salome” has maintained its strength as it crosses Zambales-Bataan, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said on Friday.
The state weather bureau raised Signal No. 2 over Bataan and Southern Zambales while it placed the rest of Zambales, Metro Manila, Bulacan, Pampanga, Cavite, Batangas, and northern Occidental Mindoro under Signal No. 1.
Pagasa said moderate to heavy rains are expected in these areas with storm signals.
