Typhoon “Helen” (international name “Megi”) may already be on its way out of the Philippine area of responsibility or PAR, but it continues to enhance the southwest monsoon or habagat which in turn causes occassional heavy rains in many provinces in the country.

In its severe weather bulletin released late Tuesday night, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) projected that typhoon “Helen” was last located at 425 kilometers north northwest of Basco, Batanes (23.8°N, 120.0°E).

It carries maximum sustained winds of up to 150 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 230 kph. It is move west worthwest at 17 KPH and is expected to move out of PAR within Wednesday. The Batanes Group of Islands remains under signal number one.

The weather bureau meanwhile placed the following areas under the yellow rainfall warning as of early Wednesday morning: Pampanga, Tarlac, Nueva Ecija, Zambales, Bulacan, Bataan, Rizal, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon, as well as Metro Manila. Those areas can expect rains lasting for up to two hours which may cause flooding.

So far, local government units in the following areas have announced class suspensions for their respective localities. It is likely that more will announce as PAGASA releases its 5AM weather update:



Bocaue, Bulacan
Marilao, Bulacan
Meycauayan, Bulacan

Antipolo City
Cainta, Rizal
Rodriguez, Rizal
Taytay, Rizal


If there’s heavy rains or floods in the area where you will be coming from, keep in mind CHED Memo #15 (2012).

“Students who are unable to report to class or participate in scheduled activities such as exams due to inclement weather shall be given consideration and be allowed to make up for the missed class or activity.”
