Heavy rainfall warning hoisted over Sorsogon, other areas due to “Tisoy”

(Eagle News)–A heavy rainfall warning has been hoisted over several areas as “Tisoy” slightly intensified and made landfall in Gubat, Sorsogon.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said a red warning  has been hoisted over Northern Samar, Catanduanes, Sorsogon, Albay, Camarines Sur and Masbate including Ticao and Burias Islands.

Thus means severe flooding is expected in flood-prone areas and near river channels.

Landslides are also possible.

PAGASA said an orange warning is hoisted over Romblon and Marinduque, as flooding is expected to become threatening in low-lying areas and near river channels.

A yellow warning is  over Oriental Mindoro and Camarines Norte, where flooding is expected in low-lying areas near river channels and landslides in mountainous areas.
