Northeast monsoon to affect Mindanao and Visayas - PAGASA

OZAMIZ CITY, Misamis Occidental, Jan. 2 (PIA) -– Mindanao will have mostly cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms, brought about by the Northeast monsoon.

As such, Mindanao will experience becoming cloudy with widespread rains over Eastern and Southern Mindanao which may trigger flashfloods and landslides.

The same weather condition will be the experienced in Visayas while Eastern Luzon will experience mostly cloudy skies with rains and the rest of the country, from partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies with light rains.

Moderate to strong winds blowing from the Northeast will prevail over Luzon and Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough.

Elsewhere, winds will be moderate to occasionally strong coming from the Northereast to North with moderate to occasionally rough seas.

This forecast of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) was issued after another low pressure area (LPA) was estimated at 100 km. East of Southern Mindanao, at 2:00 a.m., today.

Thus, the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (RDRRMC), region 10, has called on all the local DRRMC’s to alert the people in the coastal areas and other low-lying places against possible rise in coastal waters, Regional Director Ana Caňeda of the Office of Civil Defense (OCD), region 10, said.

Again, fishing boats and other small sea crafts in the region are advised to take precautionary measures before going out into the sea, while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves, Caňeda, who is also the Chairperson RDRRMC-10, said.

Likewise, people and the local DRRMC’s are reminded to take appropriate pro-active actions to aim for “zero” casualty focused on evacuation, rather than rescue, Caňeda added. (Rutchie Cabahug-Aguhob/PIA-10 Mis. Occ.)
