COTABATO CITY, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / Mar. 21, 2008) – Authorities have warned residents near riverbanks to take precautionary measures as torrential rains continued Friday in the southern Philippines.


Several people had died in the south the past days due to floods and landslides and weather experts said more rains are expected fall.

 The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said although there is no existing tropical cyclone, the tail-end of a cold front are affecting not only Mindanao, but eastern Luzon as well. “The ridge of North Pacific High Pressure Area which extends over Luzon and the easterly waves that affect Mindanao are the major weather systems which are expected to prevail for the next several days,” it said.
