RDRRMC warns NorMin folks of possible floods due to wind convergence and tail end of a cold front

by Rutchie Cabahug-Aguhob

OZAMIZ CITY, Misamis Occidental, Jan. 5 (PIA) –- The Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (RDRRMC), region 10, has called on all the local DRRMC’s of the region to warn people in the coastal areas and other low-lying places to take pre-cautionary measures against possible rise in coastal waters.

This warning was issued as the government weather agency reports of a wind convergence that will affect Mindanao and tail end of a cold front affecting the Visayas and Southern Luzon, in the next 24 hours.

Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) in its weather bulletin at 5:00 a.m., today, Jan. 5, 2012 says Mindanao, Southern Luzon and the Visayas will have mostly cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms becoming cloudy with widespread rains over Eastern Mindanao and Eastern Visayas, which may trigger flashfloods and landslides.

The rest of Luzon will experience mostly cloudy skies with rains. Moderate to strong winds blowing from the Northeast will prevail over the Visayas and Luzon and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough.

Elsewhere, winds will be moderate to occasionally strong coming from the Northeast and East with moderate to occasionally rough seas.

Meanwhile, Regional Director Ana Caňeda of the Office of Civil Defense (OCD), region 10, has warned fishing boats and other small sea crafts in the region to take precautionary measures before going out into the sea, while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves.

Likewise, the local DRRMC’s are reminded to take appropriate pro-active actions to aim for “zero” casualty focused on evacuation, rather than rescue, Caňeda who is also the Chairperson of RDRRMC-10, added. (PIA-10)
