Tropical depression 'Tino' weakens into low-pressure area (Philippine Star)
MANILA, Philippines - Tropical depression “Tino” weakened and dissipated yesterday but the northeast monsoon would continue to bring scattered rains over Luzon in the next two to three days, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.
Pagasa deputy administrator Nathaniel Cruz said Luzon would have mostly cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and isolated thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) reported three more deaths from typhoon “Santi,” bringing the total number of fatalities to 19.
The NDCC said the deaths were due mostly to drowning and occurred in suburban Laguna and in two eastern provinces.
Three other people are missing primarily due to flash floods, the council said. Almost 16,000 people are still in evacuation centers three days after the typhoon hit.
Floodwaters remain waist-deep or higher in Laguna and in Pangasinan, after Santi dumped more rain on areas already inundated by two previous deadly storms.
