Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 1) --- The Marikina River was placed again under first alarm on Friday night after its water level breached 15 meters due to heavy rains brought by Typhoon Hanna. 

As of 9 p.m., the river’s water level has risen to 15.3 meters, the Marikina Public Information Office said.

The first alarm was raised on Thursday, but the river’s water level normalized earlier at 4 a.m.

The state weather bureau also hoisted a yellow rainfall warning – which means heavy rains will be observed for an hour and may continue until the next two hours - over Metro Manila, Bataan, Pampanga, and parts of Zambales.
