MANILA, Philippines — A state weather specialist on Sunday morning said Tropical Storm “Domeng” (international name: Maliksi) has nearly left the Philippine Area of Responsibility and is no longer affecting the country.

In its 5 a.m. advisory, PAGASA weather specialist Gener Quitlong said satellite images showed that Domeng’s center is near the borderline of PAR. Its center was located 855 kilometers east northeast of Basco, Batanes at around 4 a.m.

Quitlong said Domeng has maximum winds of 100 kilometer per hour and gustiness of up to 120 kph.

The tropical storm is expected to move northeast at 32 kph.

Despite moving farther and no longer affecting the country, Quitlong said Domeng continues to enhance the southwest monsoon or “habagat” which brings in the rain over the rest of the country.

At 8:30 a.m., PAGASA issued a red rainfall warning over Cavite province.

With this red warning level, serious flooding is expected in flood prone areas.

PAGASA also issued yellow rainfall warning over Tarlac, Batangas and Laguna where possible flooding in low-lying areas is expected.

It also said Metro Manila, Rizal, Zambales, Bataan, Nueva Ecija, Bulacan and Pampanga may experience persisting light to moderate with occasional heavy rains.
