MANILA, Philippines — The Metro Manila Development Authority on Tuesday declared that it will lift the number coding scheme due to inclement weather.

The traffic authority initially announced that the unified vehicular volume reduction program will be lifted for all cities and municipalities in Metro Manila except Makati City and Las Piñas City. However, the MMDA later on suspended the number coding scheme in all cities and municipalities in the metro.

The MMDA made the announcement as Typhoon Lannie and Tropical Depression Maring prevail in the country. The traffic authority also reported flooding in some areas due to continuous downpour.

Makati City made a separate announcement that the number coding scheme is lifted in the city.

Malacañang earlier suspended the work in government offices in Metro Manila, Region 3 and Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon) due to the bad weather.
