'Ambo' to bring rain over eastern PH

MANILA, Philippines - Public Storm Warning Signal #1 has been raised over 4 provinces as the active low pressure area east of the Visayas was upgraded to a tropical depression late Thursday, May 31.

Tropical Depression Ambo was spotted 260 kilometers east of Borongan, Eastern Samar as of 10 pm Thursday, state weather bureau PAGASA said in its 11:30 pm bulletin.

"Ambo" has maximum winds of 55 kilometers per hour near the center, and forecast to move northwest at 15 kph, the bulletin said.

Storm warning signal #1 has been raised over Catanduanes and the 3 Samar provinces (Northern Samar, Samar, and Eastern Samar).

PAGASA said areas within the 200 km diameter of "Ambo" can expect heavy rainfall, at 10-15 millimeters per hour.

"Residents living in low lying and mountainous areas under signal # 1 are alerted against possible flashfloods and landslides," the bulletin said.

The weather bureau also alerted fishing boats and small seacraft to avoid venturing out to sea in the eastern seaboards of Luzon, Visayas, and northeastern Mindanao.

The next bulletin will be released at 5 am Friday, June 1. - Rappler.com
