PAGASA: LPA OFF MINDANAO NOT LIKELY TO DEVELOP INTO A TYPHOON

iT IS UNLIKELY that the low-pressure area (LPA) that formed inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), would develop into a typhoon, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

But the weather bureau said the LPA that enterred PAR this weekend can pose potential flash floods and landslides risk in parts of the Visayas and Mindanao. 

“It’s still unlikely for the LPA to develop into a tropical cyclone,” weather forecaster Chris Perez he said.

Perez said the LPA may move near Mindanao then eventually either dissipate or cross the island. 

According to PAGASA, as of 10 a.m. Monday, the LPA was some 185 kilometers east of Hinatuan municipality in Caraga in Surigao del Sur province.
