Cebu Daily News - - NEWS - / C O R R ES PONDENT AGNES B. ALPUER-

Pre­pare to get soaked in the rain.

Weather of­fi­cials said that wide­spread mod­er­ate to heavy rains are ex­pected in Cebu dur­ing the All Saints’ and All Souls’ Days cel­e­bra­tions as a re­sult of the low pres­sure area (LPA) that is now within the vicin­ity of Suri­gao del Norte.

Leo Aguirre, weather spe­cial­ist of the Philip­pine At­mo­spheric Geo­phys­i­cal and As­tro­nom­i­cal Ser­vices Ad­min­is­tra­tion (Pagasa) Mac­tan, said those those plan­ning out­door ac­tiv­i­ties are ad­vised to al­ways bring with them their um­brel­las for their pro­tec­tion in case it rains.

He said rain­ing is ex­pected to per­sist in Cebu and the rest of Cen­tral Visayas from Tues­day night to Wed­nes­day.

As of 3 p.m. on Mon­day, Pagasa es­ti­mated the LPA to be lo­cated around 300 kilo­me­ters east of Suri­gao City, Suri­gao del Norte. Suri­gao City is around 400 kilo­me­ters away from Cebu City.

Aguirre warned that the wide­spread rain­ing may cause flood­ing in some ar­eas in Cebu and may af­fect the traf­fic flow near the ceme­ter­ies.

“Labaw na g’yud ning Novem­ber 1, ku­sog gyud ang uwan. Dili nato mak­i­tan ang ad­law labi na inig hapon tun­god sad ag-om (Rains will get worse on Novem­ber 1. We prob­a­bly won’t see the sun es­pe­cially in the af­ter­noon be­cause of the dark clouds),” Aguirre added. Source: Ac­cuweather.com
