LPA brings rains over Bohol

The extension of a low pressure area (LPA) inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility brought continuous rains in most parts of Bohol and other parts of the Visayas and Mindanao.

The LPA was spotted 300 km east, southeast of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur as of this morning, said Leonard Samar, officer in charge of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) in Bohol.

According to Samar, the weather disturbance is heading towards the Visayas.

He however clarified that there is minimal chance that the LPA would intensify into a storm.

Still, the state weather bureau warned the public of possible landslides due to the continued rains in the province.

Even moderate rains, when continuous, can soften soil and trigger landslides.

Those near river channels and low-lying areas were also warned against possible flooding as rains continued to pour. (A. Doydora)
