Pangasinan Governor Amado Espino III warned Pangasinenses that the Habagat or the Southwest Monsoon still poses a threat to the province.
The Pangasinan politiko made the remark on September 9 amid the continuous heavy rains brought about by the Habagat.
Espino has ordered an pre-emptive evacuation of residents in hazard-prone areas.
He also called on local disaster risk reduction and management councils to monitor the situation.
Espino said local officials must undertake proactive measures to minimize loss of life.
