The LPA, last located 80 kilometers east of Infanta, Quezon, brought heavy rains over parts of Luzon, including Metro Manila, triggering floods.

PAGASA also issued a yellow rainfall advisory at 4:30 a.m. over Metro Manila.

The state weather bureau observed torrential rains in Manila where flooding was reported.

Heavy rains were observed in Parañaque; and moderate to heavy rains in CAMANAVA, Quezon City, Pasig, Marikina, San Juan, Makati, Mandaluyong, Pasay, Taguig, Las Piñas and Muntinlupa.

Heavy rains over Cebu also triggered a landslide in Naga City on Tuesday evening, killing couple Dionisio and Juliana Villarmia.
