Rains to persist as ‘Amang’ weakens into LPA

WEATHER disturbance ‘Amang’ weakened into a low pressure area (LPA), but will continue to cause rains over parts of Luzon.

In its 11 a.m. bulletin yesterday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said light to moderate with at times heavy rains will prevail over Rizal and Quezon.

Scattered rain showers and thunderstorms are still forecast over Metro Manila, Central Luzon and the rest of Calabarzon.

Flooding and rain-induced landslides are possible, especially in areas highly-susceptible to these hazards.

The LPA is unlikely to bring rough seas over the coastal waters of the country.

PAGASA expects the remnant circulation to head northwestward or west northwestward towards Polillo Islands and northern mainland Quezon.

Further, the LPA may dissipate in the next 24 hours, PAGASA said. (PNA)
