The low pressure area (LPA) located 470 kilometers East of Guiuan, Eastern Samar based on satellite and surface data issued by the PAGASA earlier today is expected to become a full-blown tropical depression within 24 hours and will be called Bagyong Gener.
PAGASA already issued advisory to provinces in Eastern Luzon and Visayas. While Tropical Depression Gener will not have a landfall, it will intensify the current weather system in the country and may cause heavier than normal rainfall that will eventually result to flashfloods and mudslides.
The other LPA is about to exit the country and may not affect the weather system in the country in any way. It was last seen 600 kilometers East, Northeast of Appari, Cagayan.
Both LPAs have already caused scattered rainfalls so lands are still wet when tropical depression Gener hits the country. Everyone who lives in flashflood- and landslide-prone areas are advised to coordinate with their respective local government units (LGU). LGUs of affected areas have already been notified of the upcoming storm. In light to improving disaster preparedness, there could already be evacuation centers setup.
