Panahon ng tag-ulan sa bansa opisyal nang idineklara ng PAGASA
NAKO, mga ka-bandera! Kailangan niyo nang ihanda ang mga payong, kapote at ilan pang panangga sa ulan.
Nagdeklara na kasi ang PAGASA na simula na ng “rainy season” o panahon ng tag-ulan sa ating bansa.
Ayon sa weather bureau, minarkahan ito ng pagdaan ng bagyong Betty at ng umiiral na Hanging Habagat.
“The occurrence of scattered thunderstorms, the passage of Super Typhoon (STY) ‘Betty’ and the Southwest Monsoon (Habagat) over the past few days have brought widespread rains over the western sections of Luzon and Visayas, which signify the start of the rainy season in the country, especially over the Climate Type I areas,” sey ni PAGASA officer-in-charge Esperanza Cayanan sa inilabas na pahayag.
Paglilinaw naman ng ahensya na kahit rainy season na ay maaari pa ring maranasan ang mas kaunting pag-ulan dahil sa epekto ng El Niño.
Ngunit mas maraming ulan naman ang aasahang dala ng Southwest Monsoon o Habagat sa bansa.
“El Niño increases the likelihood of below-normal rainfall conditions, which could bring negative impacts (such as dry spells and droughts) in some areas of the country,” sey sa official statement.
Paliwanag pa, “However, enhanced Southwest monsoon season (Habagat) may also be expected, which may result in above-normal rainfall conditions over the western part of the country.”
Paalala pa ng PAGASA, “The public and all concerned agencies are advised to take precautionary measures against the impacts of the rainy season.”
