The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said these 3 provinces "are alerted against possible flash floods and landslides due to moderate to heavy rain" enhanced by Marce.
PAGASA said light to moderate rain is also expected in Metro Manila and the rest of Northern and Central Luzon.
