A red alert indicates insufficient power supply which would lead to power interruptions. A yellow alert is declared for when reserves fall below ideal levels.

Due to two lines being tripped, Meralco had conducted automatic load dropping or ALD at 1:53PM, but later on, went on to announce that power had been fully restored at 2:11PM. An ALD is a safety procedure wherein power is cut off in certain areas due to low power supply.

The ALD conducted had affected around 1.6 million customers in the regions of Caloocan, Valenzuela, Malabon, Manila, Makati, Muntinlupa, Las Piñas, Metro Manila, and parts of Bulacan, Rizal, Laguna, Batangas and Cavite.
