Philippines: NDRRMC Update Sitrep No. 04 re Preparedness Measures and Effects of El Niño, 14 March 2019

Source: Government of the Philippines Country: Philippines
I. SITUATION OVERVIEW: Recent PAGASA’s climate monitoring and analyses indicate that the unusually warm sea surface temperatures (SSTs) in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific (CEEP) which started since November 2018 is expected to become a full-blown El Nino. During the past three (3) months, rainfall analyses showed that impacts of below normal rainfall conditions in provinces of Western Mindanao and Ilocos Norte were already experienced and are expected to continue. The El Nifo is anticipated to be weak and will likely result to below normal rainfall conditions in different parts of the country in the coming months. Impacts also include slightly warmer surface temperatures in varying degrees from place to place and from time to time. With this development, the El Nifo Watch issued since July 2018 is now upgraded to El Nifio Advisory. II. EFFECTS: A. Affected Areas: A total of 23 Municipalities in Regions MIMAROPA, IX, and Xll were affected by dry spell as of 14 March 2019.
