Expect a wet Holy Week

Expect a rainy Holy Week in Negros Occidental.

Eric Villaluna, Negros Occidental Provincial Disaster Management Team officer-in-charge, said rains brought on by a low pressure area, which resulted from the weakening of tropical depression "Domeng", are expected during the entire week.

The province will experience rains, with no expected heavy winds, he said.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said the low pressure area, spotted off Guiuan, Eastern Samar, was causing the rains in many parts of the country yesterday.
