Negrenses living near watercourses are strongly advised to take the necessary precautions and be alert for possible flashfloods.

The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council through its Action Officer Supt. Nicolas Noble issued the warning following PAGASA’s advisory of strong to gale force wind that is expected to affect the seaboards of the Visayas this week.

The watercourses of Tanjay; Candugay, Siaton; Cauitan, Sipocong, Bayawan City; and Pagatban and Tyaban Rivers have been identified as disaster-prone areas in the province.

Noble advised people living near said rivers as well as along mountain slopes and in low-lying areas to be on the alert for possible flashfloods.

PAGASA’s latest weather advisory indicates “mostly cloudy skies with scattered light to moderate rainshowers and isolated thunderstorms with with wind force of 56-68 kph” to blow through Central Visayas.

Fishing boats and other small seacrafts are likwise advised not to venture out into the sea, while larger sea vessels are alerted for big waves.

Noble disclosed that the Council, as a precautionary measure, has started trimming tree branches in the City that may pose a risk to human lives. (PIA/RMN)
