MANILA--The PBA has already made a precautionary measure as super typhoon "Karding" nears Mega Manila.

The league announced on Sunday that its scheduled doubleheader later in the day will be postponed.

Meralco was supposed to take on NLEX in the first game at 4:30 p.m., while Converge and Ginebra were scheduled for a 6:45 p.m. tip-off at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay.

The PBA later announced that the PBA 3x3 Leg 3 scheduled for Monday and Tuesday at Robinson's Place Antipolo has been called off too.

"Meralco vs. NLEX and Converge vs. Ginebra as well as [the] PBA 3x3 games will be rescheduled to a later date," the PBA said in a statement.

Antipolo, along with the towns of Rodriguez, Tanay, San Mateo, and Baras, has been placed under Storm Signal No. 4 as of the 11 a.m. bulletin from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration.

Pasay, on the other hand, has been placed under Signal No. 3 along with the rest of Metro Manila.

According to the latest forecast, "Karding" could make a landfall along Polilio Islands before crossing through mainland Quezon by nighttime.
