Meanwhile, Luna-Bangar Road in La Union also remained impassable due to floods.

The agency’s quick response team has put up barricades and warning signs in the affected areas and advised motorists to pass with extreme caution if necessary to travel.

“Florita” is now out of the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR), but 11 areas in the country are still under Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) No. 1 on Wednesday, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said. — Catherine E.
