Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 16) — Local governments in some parts of Luzon have announced class suspensions due to inclement weather and possible flooding caused by tropical depression "Henry."




In a weather bulletin released 8 a.m. Monday, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said "Henry" has slightly accelerated as it moves westward towards extreme northern Luzon with maximum sustained winds of 55 kilometers per hour.

PAGASA declared tropical cyclone warning signal no. 1 in Batanes, northern part of Cagayan including the Babuyan Group of Islands, northern parts of Apayao and Ilocos Norte. The bureau advised residents to continue monitoring the weather and to coordinate with local disaster risk reduction and management offices.

"Henry" was spotted east of Aparri, Cagayan at 7 a.m. The southwest monsoon or habagat will bring rains over Metro Manila, Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, Batangas, Mindoro provinces, Palawan, and western Visayas, as well as scattered rains and thunderstorms over the rest of Luzon.

A yellow warning rainfall has been raised in Zambales and Bataan as of 11 a.m. Residents in these areas should expect flooding in low lying areas.
