Certain areas of Olongapo City were flooded early Sunday morning due to rains brought by weather disturbance "Labuyo".

And according to http://www.weather-forecast.com/locations/SubicBay/forecasts/latest the rains will be heaviest on Monday and Tuesday with 338 precipitation.

As of this writing, flooding is reported in barangays East and West Bajac Bajac, Acacia St in Gordon Heighst, various areas in Sta Rita and Mactan in Old Cabalan. Families are already evacuated to safer areas and electricity in flooded areas such as davidson in West Bajac Bajac were requested to be shutdown to prevent electricution since the water have reached level of electrical outlets.

The Traffic Management Board have requests of towing services to clear roads of stalled vehicles and the City Disaster and Coordinating Council on red alert.

Below is an online report from RIO ROSE RIBAYA - Manila Bulletin

Monsoon rains will continue to prevail over Central and Southern Luzon as well as Visayas even as tropical storm "Labuyo" moves away from the country on its way to Japan, the weather bureau said on Saturday.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said it spotted the eye of the storm in the Philippine Sea at 990 kilometers east of Basco, Batanes as of 10 a.m. on Saturday.

In its latest tropical cyclone update, PAGASA noted that "Labuyo" further intensified with maximum winds of 85 kph near its center and gustiness of up to 100 kph.

But the weather bureau did not raise public warning storm signals in any part of the country after the storm continued its northeast movement towards Japan.

PAGASA said the weather disturbance will continue to enhance the southwest monsoon and will bring occasional rains to Central Luzon, Calabarzon, and Bicol as well as Western, Central and Eastern Visayas.

PAGASA said that monsoon rains will become widespread in the western parts of the country such as Zambales, Tarlac, Bataan, Pampanga, Bulacan, Rizal, Metro Manila, Cavite, Batangas, Laguna, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Romblon, Aklan, Capiz, Iloilo, and Antique.

At the same time, PAGASA advised fishing vessels and small seacraft not to venture out into the sea as strong winds associated with the southwest monsoon and enhanced by the tropical storm "Labuyo" will make the sea rough.

The weather bureau said Mindanao will have mostly cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms with rough to very rough sea conditions with waves as big as 5.5 meters high.

PAGASA said it expects storm "Labuyo" to be at 1,160 kms east northeast of Basco, Batanes by Sunday morning and finally out of the country on Monday at about 1,370 kms northeast of Basco, Batanes.
