Flash floods, landslides

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said the active low-pressure area (ALPA) off Luzon and the southwest monsoon may cause flash floods and landslides in Luzon and Visayas.

In its 10:30 a.m. advisory, PAGASA said the ALPA was estimated at 330 km east of Tuguegarao as of 8 a.m.

"This weather disturbance and the southwest monsoon will bring scattered rain showers and thunderstorms to widespread rain and thunderstorms in Luzon and Visayas which may trigger flashfloods and landslides," it said. — LBG, GMA News
