NOTE: latest report says strom may shift south and miss most of metro manila but will hit areas south of the capital and may pass on to mindoro. the next few hours are critical. though as two bodies of water laguna de bay and manila bay may draw the storm to the area. But if so it would be weakened by the hills of btangas and thus may pass clear of the area entirely. However this does not lomit the risk to people in those areas.
