MANILA, Philippines – A low pressure area (LPA) brought rain to several areas in the Visayas and Mindanao on Monday, May 30.
The LPA was located 130 kilometers northeast of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur, on Monday afternoon.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the LPA only has a slim chance of developing into a tropical depression, but it may still cause flash floods and landslides.
Rain on Monday was moderate to heavy in the regions of Eastern Visayas and Caraga.
Central Visayas as well as the rest of Mindanao saw light to moderate rain, with some periods of heavy rain.
“Under these conditions, scattered flooding and rain-induced landslides are likely,” PAGASA warned.
