MANILA, Philippines – Typhoon Kammuri local name ‘Tisoy’ exited the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) on Thursday at 8:00 AM, according to state weather service PAGASA.

Based on PAGASA’s latest update, ‘Tisoy’ was located at 580 km south of Iba, Zambales.

Though the weather disturbance no longer impacts any part of the country, scattered rains and thunderstorms will still be experienced in Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region,and the province of Aurora due to the effects of the tail end of a cold front.

Meanwhile the Northeast Monsoon will bring light rains over Ilocos Region and the rest of Central Luzon.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country, meanwhile, will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers due to localized thunderstorms.

According to PAGASA, Typhoon Tisoy somehow improved the water level in Angat Dam.  

As of 6:00 AM today, Angat’s level marked 1.05 meter-increase to 194.52 meters from Tuesday’s 193.47 meters.

Prior to that, Angat Dam gained more than 4 meters during the onslaught of the typhoon. – MNP (with details from Rey Pelayo)

MANILA, Philippines – The water level in Angat Dam has improved in the aftermath of Typhoon Ambo in Luzon.

According to the latest reading by the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the weather system has added 3.09 meters of water to Angat Dam’s reserve from 187.53 meters on May 15 to 190.62 meters on 6:00 am, Sunday (May 17).

Angat’s water level is now 10 meters over its normal operating level of 180 meters.

Last week, the National Water Resources Board (NWRB) has increased domestic allocation to Metro Manila from Angat Dam to 48 cubic meters per second from 46 cubic meters per second to maintain enough supply on the duration of the government-imposed community quarantine in view of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) crisis. –MNP (with reports from Rey Pelayo)

MANILA, Philippines — Water allocation in Metro Manila will not be cut until the month of June, according to the National Water Resources Board (NWRB).

Specifically, the allocation of water supply in Metro Manila from Angat Dam remains at 46 cubic meters per second in May and June. 

The agency wants to ensure that households will get enough water, especially while the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) is in effect so that residents can maintain cleanliness and proper hygiene to reduce risk of COVID-19 infection.

Meanwhile, the PAGASA-DOST reported a continuous drop in Angat Dam’s water level. 

As of Thursday morning (May 7), the Dam’s water level was at 189.29 meters, a drop of .19 meters from 189.48 on Wednesday (May 6).

This, however, is still well within its minimum operating level of 180 meters. 

Water concessionaires Maynilad and Manila Water have assured a round-the-clock water supply among their clients except in areas where repair or maintenance works are ongoing. — MNP (with details from Rey Pelayo)

MANILA, Philippines – Angat Dam’s water level has improved in the past 24 hours despite the prevailing dry season, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) announced Wednesday (April 14).

As of 6:00 A.M., the water level in Angat Dam increased from 192.95 meters on Tuesday to 193.1 meters on Wednesday which PAGASA attributed to the sudden rains over the watershed in the previous days.

At present, domestic allocation to Metro Manila remains at 46 cubic meters per second.

Meanwhile, PAGASA said residents in the provinces of Quezon and Camarines in Bicol may expect cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers and thunderstorms within the day due to the effects of the Tail-End-of-a-Cold-Front (TECF).

Cagayan Valley and the regions of Ilocos and Cordillera will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have fair weather with isolated rainshowers due to localized thunderstorms throughout the day. MNP (with reports from Rey Pelayo)
