Visayas, Mindanao to experience light to heavy rains due to LPA

 
(Latest satellite imagery of LPA, March 11, 8:10 am.)

TACLOBAN CITY — Eastern Visayas, and different areas of Visayas and Mindanao will experience light to moderate rains due to a low-pressure area (LPA) spotted at 690 km east southeast of Davao City on Wednesday. This weather disturbance is less likely to develop into a tropical depression in the next 36 hours. 

The LPA will bring moderate to heavy rains over Caraga Region. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains will be experienced over Northern Mindanao, Davao Region, Eastern, and Central Visayas. 


 Flooding (including flash floods) and rain-induced landslides may occur during heavy or prolonged periods of rainfall, especially in the areas identified to be highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards or in localities that received a significant amount of rainfall during the past couple of days or weeks.

“Nananatili pong mababa ang tsansa na ito ay maging isang bagyo o maging isang tropical depression.  Ngunit patuloy po itong magdudulot ng mga light to moderate to at times heavy na mga pag-ulan sa buong bahagi ng Visayas at Mindanao, (The low pressure area still has a low chance of developing into a tropical depression.  However, it would still cause light to moderate to at times heavy rains over the whole Visayas and Mindanao.)” weather specialist Ana Clauren said.


Adjacent or nearby areas may also experience flooding in the absence of such rainfall occurrence due to surface runoff or swelling of river channels. The public and disaster risk reduction and management offices concerned are advised to take appropriate measures and watch for the next update on this weather disturbance to be incorporated in PAGASA's 24-hour public weather forecast.

PAGASA regional services divisions will issue local thunderstorm/rainfall advisories and heavy rainfall warnings in their respective areas of responsibility while the hydrometeorology division and river basin flood forecasting and warning centers will issue general flood advisories and river basin flood advisories/bulletins as appropriate.  Tacloban News Update | PAGASA advisory
