UPDATE: Red rainfall alert up in parts of Metro Manila

PAGASA  has raised the warning signal from green to red in parts of Metro Manila this afternoon. Heavy to intense (15.0-30.0 millimeters/hr) rains with occasional torrential (more than 30.0 mm/hr) rains are expected over Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela, Manila, Pasig, Pasay and Taguig.

9 areas in Luzon under state of calamity

As of Tuesday evening, the state of calamity was declared in the provinces of Bataan, Laguna, Pampanga and Zambales; Cainta and San Mateo, both of Rizal province; and Valenzuela City, Malabon City, and Muntinlupa City, all of Metro Manila.
Metro Manila and other parts of the country were already saturated from Typhoon Gener (international codename: Saola) last week that battered Manila and the north for several days before blowing away Friday. That storm was responsible for at least 53 deaths.
As of 5:30 am today, PAGASA said "moderate to heavy (7.5-12.0 mm/hr) rains is expected over Metro Manila and at times Heavy to Intense (10.0-20.0 mm/hr) rains within the next 2 hours."

Starting the month of June is also the beginning of rainy season. That's why Philippines Weather warned us to get ready for this coming rainy season.
