    LPA threatens Philippines

     
    MANILA’S weather bureau on Saturday warned against possible flooding and landslides in Southern Philippines if a low pressure area (LPA) develops into a tropical depression.
    In an advisory received by Catherine Teves of the state-run Philippines News Agency (PNA) from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), heavy downpour is expected to persist from two to three hours on Saturday.
    ”Flooding is threatening in low-lying areas and landslides in mountainous areas in Southern Philippines,” PAGASA told Teves.
    She said PAGASA advised the public and disaster risk reduction and management councils concerned to monitor the weather through its next advisory.
    The LPA entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) at 4 pm on Friday and is threatening three cities and 19 provinces of the country’s southern part.
    Should the LPA develop into a typhoon, PAGASA will name it “Agaton” --- the first cyclone to enter the Philippines this year.
