Flood-hit southern Philippines

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Tuesday afternoon warned residents in low-lying areas in Southern Philippines to be on alert for possible flashfloods and landslides.

The government's weather bureau reported that as of 10 a.m., a shallow low pressure area (SLPA) was located 100 kilometers south of Southern Philippines.

PAGASA said the weather disturbance will bring widespread rainshowers over the region, particularly over its southern parts.

"Residents living in low-lying areas and along mountain slopes are advised to be on alert for possible occurrence of flashfloods and landslides," the weather bureau said.

PAGASA said the SLPA may intensify into a storm and enter the Philippine area of responsibility on Wednesday.
