Brewing Storm To Bring Rains Over Large Swaths of the Country, PAGASA Says
PAGASA said that a brewing storm is expected to bring rains over most parts of the Philippines, which may ease Angat Dam’s declining water level.
On Monday (June 24, 2019), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said that a low-pressure area was located at 595 kilometers northeast of Borongan City, Eastern Samar.
The state weather bureau said that the LPA is unlikely to intensify into a storm but could bring rains over Central Luzon.
The expected inclement weather condition in Central Luzon could relieve the declining water level in Angat Dam.
Angat Dam’s water level slid to 159.43 meter, which is below the 160-meter critical level.
The trough of the low-pressure area could also cause floods and landslides over the Metro Manila, Visayas, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Bicol, Caraga, Davao Region, and Aurora province.
PAGASA weather forecaster Meno Mendoza said that the remaining parts of the country would experience hot and humid weather condition but localized thunderstorms are also expected in the afternoon or evening.
