State weather forecasters warned of possible flash floods and landslides over parts of Mindanao in the next 24 hours as a potential cyclone — a low-pressure area — hovered over Surigao del Sur Saturday afternoon.

In its 5 p.m. bulletin, PAGASA said the LPA was estimated at 390 km east of Hinatuan City in Surigao del Sur province as of 4 p.m.

“The regions of Caraga, Davao, Socckssargen, ARMM, and Northern Mindanao will experience cloudy skies with moderate to occasionally heavy rain showers and thunderstorms which may trigger flash floods and landslides,” the state weather forecaster said.

The Visayas region, Zamboanga Peninsula in Mindanao and Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan) will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms, it added.

Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will experience partly cloudy skies with thunderstorms mostly during the afternoon or evening, it said.

Luzon’s coastal waster will be moderate to rough due to southwest monsoon, while slight to moderate seas will prevail in Visayas and Mindanao, PAGASA said. — with a report from Rouchelle R. Dinglasan /LBG, GMA News
