An orange rainfall alert has been raised in Bohol province around 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2022.

An orange alert or orange rainfall advisory means that rainfall in the area is between 15 mm and 30 mm within one hour.

This is why the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said there are threats of flooding incidents in low-lying areas while risks of landslides are possible in mountainous areas.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the rain is due to the low pressure area (LPA) inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

The LPA was already in the vicinity of Talacogon, Agusan del Sur.

It will continue to cross the Mindanao-Visayas area, heading for the Sulu Sea, and eventually Palawan.

The LPA is causing scattered rain and thunderstorms in these areas on Tuesday in Visayas, Mindanao and Bicol.
