MANILA, Philippines – State weather bureau PAGASA warned the regions of Caraga and Davao to be on alert for possible flash floods and landslides on Thursday, February 8, due to a low pressure area (LPA).
In a bulletin issued 4 pm on Wednesday, February 7, PAGASA said the LPA is already 485 kilometers east of Davao City.
The trough or extension of the LPA is expected to bring light to heavy rain to Caraga and Davao on Thursday, which may trigger flash floods and landslides.
