At 4:00 a.m. on 6 October 1993, the center of the storm was estimated to be over the province of Nueva Ecija in Central Luzon with maximum sustained winds of 85 KPH near the center and gusts up to 105 KPH. The provinces of Pampanga, Nueva Viscaya, Tarlac, Cagayan, Cavite, Bataan, Bulacan and The National Capital Region, including Metro Manila, have been affected with heavy rains and strong winds. Mudflows have been triggered from Mount Pinatubo Volcano engulfing houses in Pampanga province. Unconfirmed media reports indicate 6 persons dead and 20 missing in Nueva Vizcaya province alone. Some 40,000 persons are estimated to have lost their homes due to flooding and mudslides. An estimated 40,000 hectares of rice land were damaged in Central and Northern Luzon.
