Agaton weakens, becomes low pressure area
MANILA, Philippines – Tropical Depression Agaton has weakened into a low pressure area late Monday, January 20, state weather bureau PAGASA said.
As of 10 am, Agaton was located 400 km east southeast of Davao City, the bureau said in its 11 am bulletin on the system.
With this development, all public storm warning signals have been lowered, and the bureau said the 11 am bulletin will be its final one for Agaton "unless re-intensification occurs."
Despite this, it will continue bringing moderate to occasionally heavy rain and thunderstorms over Northern Mindanao, Caraga, and the Davao Region.
The storm's toll continues to be at 40 people, with 65 others injured and 6 missing, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said in its 6 am report Monday. The death count has not changed since Saturday, January 18. – Rappler.com
