“Carina” weakens into LPA; thunderstorm advisory raised over parts of Mindanao

Cloudy skies, isolated rainshowers to prevail over parts of S. Luzon

(Eagle News)–Tropical Depression “Carina” has weakened into a low pressure area.

But a thunderstorm advisory has been raised over parts of Mindanao due to thunderstorms, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.

Moderate to heavy rainshowers with lightning and strong winds  are expected over portions of Zamboanga Sibugay (Buug, Alicia, Malangas), and Tawi Tawi within the next one to two hours.

These conditions are being experienced in Zamboanga del Sur (Tabina, Pitogo, Dimataling, Vincenzo A. Sagun, Margosatubig, Dinas, San Pablo, Guipos, Lapuyan), Zamboanga City, Basilan, and Sulu, and may affect nearby areas.

“All are advised to take precautionary measures against the impact associated with these hazards which include flash floods and landslides,” PAGASA said.

Meanwhile, in Southern Luzon, PAGASA said partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers will prevail over Bicol Region, Northern Samar, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque and Romblon.

Light to moderate winds will prevail across these areas, which will have slight to moderate seas, PAGASA said.
