Despite the exit of typhoon Domeng in the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Sunday, June 10, the state weather bureau PAGASA says heavy rains will continue to pursue due to the southwest monsoon or ‘Habagat’.
In a report, PAGASA meteorologist Shelly Ignacio said that typhoon “Domeng” was spotted 1,045 kilometers East Northeast of Basco, Batanes, with maximum, sustained winds of 120 kilometers per hour and 145 kph gusts. However, the typhoon will continue enhancing the ‘Habagat’ which will bring rains that may trigger flood and landslides in the areas of Luzon.
PAGASA said that the weather may improve either on Tuesday or Wednesday.
On the other hand, due to heavy rains that caused floods in most parts of Metro Manila, some local government units (LGU) decided the cancellation of classes in their respective areas.
As of Monday, June 11 at 7:00 AM, the following were the areas where classes were suspended:
ALL LEVELS (IN NCR)
