Insuring in the rainy season
State weather bureau Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has officially declared that the rainy season has begun.
“The occurrence of scattered to at times widespread rainfall associated with the Southwest Monsoon during the past few days as observed by most PAGASA stations in the western section of the country confirms the onset of the rainy season,” said PAGASA chief Dr. Vicente Malano in a press statement.
The PAGASA report stated that the incoming rainy season will have between 10 to 15 tropical cyclones for this year, with each month from June up until late in the 4th quarter averaging to at least two tropical cyclones each. Between January to March of 2019, there have been three identified tropical cyclones: Tropical Depression Amang for January, Tropical Depression Betty for February, and Tropical Depression Chedeng for March.
