Dinagat, Siargao, Surigao Norte under signal 1 as ALPA becomes depression 'Feria'

At least nine areas were placed under Storm Signal No. 1 early Tuesday after an active low pressure area (ALPA) in the Visayas intensified into tropical depression "Feria."

Under Signal No. 1 were Samar provinces, Leyte provinces, Camotes Islands, Biliran Island, Northern Cebu, Bohol, Dinagat Island, Siargao, and Surigao del Norte.

"Residents living in low-lying areas and mountainous areas under Signal No. 1 are alerted against possible flashloods and landslides," the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.

In its 5 a.m. advisory, Pagasa said tropical depression "Feria" was estimated at 210 km east southeast of Borongan, Eastern Samar as of 4 a.m.

But Pagasa forecaster Elvie Enriquez said this will bring little "relief" to residents in Metro Manila, who she said will continue to experience humidity.

"Maalinsangan, 33.4 degrees Celsius ang ating pinakamainit na temperatura. May bagyo tayo nakakadagdag ng alinsangan. Lalong umaalinsangan, ang tinatawag nating humidity. Ang ating relative humidity is 94 percent," she said.

[We expect temperatures in Metro Manila to go up to 33.4 degrees Celsius. And the weather disturbance will bring more humidity, up to 94 percent.]

Pagasa forecast "Feria" to move west northwest at 15 kph.

"Eastern Visayas will experience rains and gusty winds with moderate to rough seas. The rest of the Visayas, Southern Luzon and Mindanao will have mostly cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms," it said.

The rest of the country will be partly cloudy to at times cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening, it added.

Light to moderate winds blowing from the southwest will prevail over Luzon and its coastal waters will be slight to moderate.

Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the southwest to northwest with slight to moderate seas. - GMANews.TV
