'Zoraida' now an LPA but heavy rains to affect typhoon-hit Visayas

MANILA, Philippines - Tropical Depression "Zoraida" weakened into a low pressure area (LPA) after making landfall in Mindanao on Tuesday, state weather bureau PAGASA said.

The agency said in a bulletin issued at 3:30 p.m. that the weather disturbance was last located in the vicinity of San Francisco, Agusan del Sur or at 40 kilometers west northwest of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur.

All public storm warning signals are now lifted with this development, PAGASA said.

But it warned that moderate to heavy rainshowers are observed over Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao and Central and Eastern Visayas, the regions pounded by Super Typhoon Yolanda last week.

PAGASA said the rainfall is expected to continue for the next six to 12 hours. Light to moderate rainshowers are also expected to persist over the rest of Visayas and Mindanao.
