MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang advised the public on Sunday to prepare and stay alert as the country experiences rains brought by two low-pressure areas (LPA) and the northeast monsoon.

“According to Pagasa [Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration], wala po tayong bagyo [We do not have typhoon]. However, we remind the public to be alert and be prepared for possible landslides and floods brought by the heavy rains. Manatiling alerto at handa [Remain alert and prepared],” presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said in a statement.


“The Executive continues to work even during this holiday season to ensure the health and safety of everyone. We ask the public to continue following their local officials, monitor the latest Pagasa advisory, and be prepared in case there is an evacuation,” he added.

Roque also reminded the public to continue observing the minimum health standards during inclement weather.

According to the state weather bureau’s 10 a.m. advisory, an LPA was located west of Puerto Princesa City, Palawan, while another LPA was located east of the Bicol Region.

Pagasa said both weather disturbances remain less likely to develop into a tropical depression in the next 24 hours.

“However, due to improvements in the cloud system of both disturbances over the past 12 hours, the likelihood of tropical cyclone formation is not ruled out at this time,” it noted.

Moderate to heavy rains may be experienced over Bicol Region, Eastern Visayas, Quezon, Aurora, Bulacan, Rizal, Mindoro Provinces, Marinduque, Romblon, Dinagat Islands, Calamian Islands, and Kalayaan Islands.


Meanwhile, Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, Metro Manila, Northern Mindanao, Zamboanga Peninsula, and the rest of Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Visayas, and Caraga may experience light to moderate with at times heavy rains.
