PAGASA warns Northern Mindanao residents of possible rise in coastal waters in the next 24 hrs.

OZAMIZ CITY, Misamis Occidental, Jan. 28 (PIA) --Wind convergence will be affecting Northern Mindanao while a diffused tail-end of a cold front will be affecting the Visayas and Southern Luzon in the next 24 hours.

According to the 24-Hr. Public Weather Forecast issued at 5:00 a.m., today, Jan. 28, 2012, by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), these two (2) weather systems has the following forecast:

The Northern and Eastern sections of Mindanao will experience mostly cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms becoming cloudy with widespread rains over the Eastern sections of Mindanao and the Visayas.

The same weather condition will also be experienced in the Visayas and Southern Luzon.

The rest of Luzon will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies except for isolated light rains while the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.

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

Elsewhere, winds will be moderate coming from the East and Northeast with moderate seas.

Thus, the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (RDRRMC), region 10, has called on the local DRRMC to warn the residents in the coastal areas to continue their guard against possible rise in coastal waters.

Likewise, fishing boats and other small sea crafts in the region are advised to take precautionary measures before going out into the sea.

Regional Director Ana Caňeda of the Office of Civil Defense (OCD), region 10, who is also the Chairperson of RDRRMC-10, said the local DRRMC’s are reminded to take appropriate pro-active actions to aim for “zero” casualty focused on evacuation, rather than rescue. (PIA-10 Mis. Occ.)
