Typhoon Hagupit (Ruby) expected to dump rains in Metro Manila


Despite not being on Typhoon Hagupit/Ruby's path, Metro Manila will still experience rains as it makes landfall on Saturday, PAGASA announced in a DZMM radio interview.

Dr. Landrico Dalida, Jr., deputy deputy director for operations and services of PAGASA, said that the National Capital Region (NCR) lies at the outer edge of the typhoon's 600-kilometer diameter.
