(Check It Out! Photos!) MANILA, Philippines- After two days of massive rainfalls which hits more than 50% of National Capital Region (NCR), Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) downgraded its rainfall monitoring alert over the capital to the lowest level, on August 8, 2012.

According to the state weather bureau, Metro Manila may experience light to moderate rains of 2-7.5 millimeters per hour with occasional rains of 8-15 mm/hr.

PAGASA downgraded the alert levels from ‘Red’ to ‘Green’ after the two days massive rainfalls and now Metro Manila has ‘Yellow’ alert level.

Cities of Paranaque, Pasig, Taguig and Quezon subsided to moderate to heavy rainfall of 3-10 mm/hr and light to moderate rains of 1-7mm/hr to the other part of Metro Manila, PAGASA said.

The heavy rains that flooded more than half of Metro Manila are caused by the southwest monsoon enhanced by a storm near China.
