Low pressure area to bring rain to east PH
MANILA, Philippines - Scattered rain and thunderstorms are expected in eastern parts of the country Sunday, August 12, as an active low pressure area (ALPA) approaches Luzon.
As of 8 a.m., the ALPA was spotted 860 kilometers east of northern Luzon, bringing rain over Bicol, Visayas, and Mindanao, state weather bureau PAGASA said.
Moderate to heavy rain (5-15 millimeters per hour) are expected over the Samar provinces, Catanduanes, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Surigao provinces, and Davao Oriental.
The rain in these areas could trigger flashfloods and landslides, the bureau said.
