LPA expected to develop into a tropical depression in 36 HRS

A low pressure area off Mindanao has entered the Philippine area of responsibility yesterday, the state weather bureau said.

The LPA, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said, it is expected to develop into a tropical depression in the next 36 hours.

Pagasa said once the LPA becomes a tropical depression, it may place the provinces in Eastern Samar and Caraga under Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 1.

Moderate to heavy rains, on the other hand, will prevail over the Caraga region, Davao Oriental, Compostela Valley, Camiguin, and Misamis Oriental.

The state weather bureau said Northern Mindanao, Caraga, Eastern Visayas, Central Visayas, the Bicol Region, Southern Quezon, Marinduque and Romblon may experience moderate to heavy rains today.

By Monday, the same weather condition may be experienced over the Bicol Region, Visayas, Southern Quezon, Marinduque, and Romblon.

“Residents of the aforementioned areas, especially those living in areas at high risk of flooding and landslides are advised to continue monitoring for updates, take precautionary measures, and coordinate with local disaster risk reduction and management offices,” Pagasa said.
