PAGASA also cautioned affected regions of possible hazards like landslides in the next 24 hours.

“Hazards affecting land areas in the next 24 hours, the shear line and trough of LPA will bring light to moderate with times heavy rains over Ilocos Norte, Apayao, Cagayan, Eastern Visayas, Caraga and Davao region,” the state weather agency said.

“Under these conditions, flooding and rain-induced landslides are possible, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards as identified in hazard maps and in areas with significant antecedent rainfall,” it added.
