After days of nonstop rains, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) lifted on Wednesday the rainfall warning over Metro Manila.

In its 11:20 a.m. bulletin, the state weather bureau said the warning was “terminated” because only “light to moderate rains” of 1 to 6 millimeters per hour were observed during the past two hours.

PAGASA, however, warned residents in the country’s capital region to “still expect intermittent moderate to heavy rains” of 5 to 10 millimeters per hour.

It likewise advised the public to still monitor the weather condition and watch out for next updates.

Metro Manila and other parts of Luzon experienced heavy flooding on Tuesday after the southwest monsoon being enhanced by a cyclone near Taiwan poured an “unprecedented” volume of rain over these areas.

Eleven were reported dead and 4 others were hurt due to the effects of the torrential monsoon rains, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said on Wednesday morning.
