by Rutchie Cabahug-Aguhob

OZAMIZ CITY, Misamis Occidental, Jan. 5 (PIA) – People living near the mountain slopes and in low-lying areas of the river systems of Northern Mindanao have been alerted of possible flashfloods and landslides.

This, as the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomic Services (PAGASA) issued General Flood Advisory No. 13 for Region 10, at 9:00 a.m., today, Jan. 5.

PAGASA said the present weather condition of a wind convergence, which is affecting Mindanao and the tail-end of a cold front, which is affecting Southern Luzon and the Visayas, may trigger flashfloods and landslides.

Observed rainfall for the past 24 hours ending at 8:00 a.m., today, show that the Lumbia Rainfall Monitoring Station has recorded a trace while that of Malaybalay has recorded 1.4 mm. of rain.

The PAGASA rainfall forecast said there will be light to occasionally moderate rains for the next 24 hours.

The waterways likely affected by this weather conditions are all the rivers and streams of Camiguin, Island, Bukidnon, Lanao del Norte, Misamis Occidental and Misamis Oriental.

These rivers include the following: Odiongan River, Tagoloan River, Cagayan de Oro River, Manduloy River, Cabulig River and the other nearby rivers in the province of Misamis Oriental.

Oroquieta River and other rivers and tributaries in Misamis Occidental and the Agus River, Liangan River, Maranding River, Mandulog River, Dapao River and Mataling River in Lanao del Norte.

Earlier, fishing boats and other small sea crafts in the region were also advised not to venture out into the sea, while larger sea vessels were alerted against big waves by the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (RDRRMC).

The RDRRMC-10 also called on the local DRRMC’s come up with pro-active measures aimed at attaining “zero” casualty focused on evacuation rather rescue. (PIA-10)
