The Local Government of Malay is now getting ready for the early onset of “habagat” season on the second week of June.

This is after the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) confirmed that the southwest monsoon or “habagat” will start on the first or second week of the rainy months.

One of the LGU’s preparations is the repair of the Tambisaan and Tabon Ports which will serve as docks during the season.

It was previously tackled at the Malay SB Session that only Tambisaan and Tabon ports will be used throughout habagat and will not be transferred at Cagban and Caticlan jetties to avoid confusion among passengers.

Meanwhile, according to PAGASA, the southwest monsoon will initially be felt at the Western Seaboards of Luzon and Visayas and will continue to affect the country from June to September.
