Based on PAGASA’s 24-Hour Public Weather Forecast issued at 4:00AM of February 16, 2021 the Visayas and Mindanao area, including SOCCSKSARGEN region, will experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms caused by tail-end of Frontal System. Moderate to heavy rains experienced in the region may trigger landslides in elevated and mountainous areas, while flood may be experienced within low-lying areas adjacent to rivers. Flash flood is also possible along narrow creeks and rivers. Coastal municipalities and barangays in the region may experience surges brought by strong winds which is potential to generate flooding in these areas. Anent to this, this Office encourages the Local Disaster Risk Reduction Management Offices (LDRRMOs) in the region to refer to the MGB-XII geohazard maps and information in identifying safe areas for evacuation and evacuation routes. Utilization of these maps and information in the conduct of information drives to inform residents living in geologically hazardous areas to take precautionary measures is encouraged. If you need more information and assistance on this matter, please feel free to contact us through our telephone numbers (083) 228-6130 or 228-6131.
