SAN PEDRO CITY –– Residents along rivers and flood-prone areas in Calabarzon were advised to take caution amid the inclement weather caused by the southwest monsoon.

The region has been experiencing light to moderate rains over the last few days.


The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration on Tuesday issued the general flood advisory, specifically for areas in Laguna, Cavite, and Batangas.

According to the weather bureau, watercourses “likely to be affected” are the Pagsanjan, Pila-Sta. Cruz, San Juan, and San Cristobal rivers in Laguna.


It also warned the communities near the Loboc, Cañas, Ilang-ilang, and Imus rivers in Cavite, as well as those in the areas of Lian, Banabang-Molino, Pansipit, Kapumpong, Rosario-Lobo, and Upper Bolbok in Batangas.

Regional disaster risk and reduction management information officer Alex Masiglat, in a phone interview, said they have yet to enforce a preemptive evacuation at the moment but have been monitoring water levels in the said tributaries. /lzb
