‘Crising’ weakens, now an LPA

MANILA, Philippines — Tropical Depression Crising was downgraded into a low-pressure area (LPA) after its intensity weakened on Friday morning.

All storm signals were subsequently lifted.


According to the 4 p.m. weather bulletin of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), the center of the weather disturbance was last spotted in the vicinity of Ramon Magsaysay in Zamboanga del Sur.


It is forecast to continue to move west or west-northwest and emerge over the Sulu Sea in the next six to 12 hours.

Zamboanga Peninsula on Saturday is forecast to experience scattered rain showers due to the movement of the LPA.

Pagasa said the LPA could pass and bring rain in a portion of Palawan on Sunday.

The rest of Luzon and the Visayas are forecast to experience warm weather, with chances of isolated rain showers in the afternoon or at night due to easterlies.

Moderate waves are expected on the eastern seaboard of the country while slight to moderate waves on the northern part of Luzon and western seaboard.

In Mati City, Davao Oriental, almost 200 individuals were evacuated as Crising dumped rain for six hours, flooding at least three villages on Friday.


The continuous rain caused the Bitan-agan River to swell, flooding homes in Matiao, Dahican, and Don Enrique Lopez villages.
