DUMAGUETE CITY – The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO) of Negros Oriental is asking its counterparts in various local government units (LGUs) to not let their guard down even as Tropical Depression “Crising” was already downgraded to a low-pressure area (LPA).
PDRRMO executive officer Adrian Sedillo, in an interview Friday afternoon, said advisories have been sent out to flood-prone areas and in places vulnerable to landslides and floods.
Despite the downgrade, he said there is still the possibility of rains in Negros Oriental because of the outer bands of the weather disturbance.
While Public Warning Storm Signal No. 1 has already been lifted from the province, Sedillo advised LGUs to remain vigilant as winds are already picking up and rains have started in some places and rainfall could get worse.
Earlier, the path of “Crising” showed that it would be cutting across Negros Oriental late Friday or early Saturday. (PNA)
