TACLOBAN CITY – Tropical Depression Queenie has weakened into a low-pressure area (LPA) at 2:00 p.m., the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 1.

In the final bulletin issued by PAGASA, the low-pressure area was located 420 kilometers east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur, at 4:20 p.m. It is generally moving northwestward at 20 kilometers per hour and may dissipate within 12 hours.

The remnant low may bring light to moderate rains, with heavy rains at times, to Caraga and Davao Oriental. Flooding and rain-induced landslides are possible under these conditions, particularly in areas identified on hazard maps as highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards and in areas with significant antecedent rainfall.

PAGASA also stated, "Given these developments, the public and disaster risk reduction and management offices involved are urged to take all necessary precautions to safeguard life and property. Residents in areas identified as highly or extremely vulnerable to these hazards are advised to follow evacuation and other instructions issued by local officials."

PAGASA concluded, "Unless redevelopment occurs, this is the final bulletin for this weather disturbance." —iTacloban
