PIA Press Release

Rains coming with weather disturbance off Mindanao

Manila (23 March) -- Finally, a respite from the drought, which has hit areas in the country.

A tropical depression, which would bring in the rains has been spotted off the Pacific Ocean and is expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) on Thursday, says the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

Nathaniel Cruz, Pagasa deputy administrator, said the weather disturbance predicts that it would bring rains over the eastern sections of the Visayas and Mindanao.

While talking about the possibility of the depression swerving towards Japan, Pag-asa noted that the high pressure prevailing in the country could block the disturbance from moving to Japan.

Seemingly too, the country's prayers have been answered, sources said as the Catholic bishops issued a circular letter to pray the Oratio Imperata, or a prayer calling divine intervention and ease the effects of the El Niņo phenomenon, which has destroyed crops harvests. (PIA) [top]
