We're also giving brief updates on Kirogi over Northern Pacific and Storm Ernesto in the Atlantic Basin.
The video also gives the latest updates on the continuing effects of the Southwest Monsoon across Luzon. We have some very good news as rains have ended across much of the National Capital Region. PAGASA has also dropped their Colored Rainfall Warning Signals. Many major thoroughfares across the metro are now passable and free of floods. Marikina River has finally come down to about 16m (it reached 20m this morning). Some dams, however, continue to release water as the water level is still beyond the critical/spilling level. There will still be rains, however, for Central and Northern Luzon; some isolated thunderstorms could also form and still impact Manila in the next 2 days but intensity and duration should be lesser compared to what happened in the past few days. Some municipalities are still announcing suspension of classes so please keep monitoring TV and the web for the latest developments in your area.
