Based on the Daily Weather Forecast from PAGASA issued at 4:00AM of April 28, 2022, Mindanao will have cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms due to Low Pressure Area (LPA)/ITCZ. Severe thunderstorms may trigger landslides in elevated and mountainous areas and wide-spread flooding along low-lying areas adjacent to river systems. Flash floods are also possible along hilly to mountainous areas with narrow streams and rivers. Low-lying coastal municipalities and barangays within the region may experience inundation due to light to moderate east winds with slight to moderate (0.6 to 2.1 meters) wave heights.

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 appropriate evacuation routes. Utilization of these maps and data to properly inform residents living in geologically hazardous areas to take precautionary measures is highly encouraged.

Should there be a need for more information and assistance on this matter, please feel free to contact us through our telephone numbers (083) 228-6130 or 228-6131.
