RDCC-8 gears up vs La Nina

Tacloban City (June 22) -- The Regional Disaster Coordinating Council in Region 8 is scheduled to conduct a meeting on June 22, 2010 at 1:00 o'clock in the afternoon to tackle the issue of La Nina.

Police Chief Superintendent Rey Lanada of the Police Regional Office 8 who is at the same time the chairman of the RDCC 8, informed that the meeting to be held at the Ritz Tower de Leyte, is in lie with the information from PAGASA about the increasing probability of the occurrence of La Nina beginning the third quarter of 2010.

Director Lanada exhorted the RDCC members to attend the meeting and to participate in the discussion on how to further enhance the disaster risk management preparation of Eastern Visayas.

A press release dated June 6, 2010 from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) stated that the development of a series of low pressure systems also known as heat lows, in the southern part of mainland Asia that linked with the low pressure area near Northern Luzon, has generated and sustained the southwestern winds in the country which brought rains for several days especially in the western section of the country.

This development, the report continued, signals the onset of the rainy season on the first week of June in areas under Type 1 climate, which covers the western parts of Luzon and Visayas.

The rainy season which is associated with the Southwest Monsoon is expected to last until the end of September. However, monsoon breaks or periods of no rain for few weeks are expected during the season.

Finally, the PAGASA report stated that with the increasing probability of the occurrence of La Nina beginning on the 3rd quarter of the year that can result to above normal rainfall, residents in the low-lying areas and near mountain slopes are advised to take precautionary measures against possible flash floods and landslides during periods of heavy rains.
