PAGASA also advised the residents in the affected areas to take precautionary measures for possible flash floods and landslides during moderate to heavy rains.
“Pinag-iingat po natin ‘yung mga kababayan po nating mangingisda lalong-lalo na ‘yung gumagamit ng maliliit na sasakyang pandagat, iwasan po munang pumalaot,” Duran said.
