“Dante” has intensified into a Tropical Storm as it continues to move North northwestward at 15 km. per hour bringing rains over parts of Mindanao, according to state weather bureau PAGASA’s latest update early Monday.
PAGASA warned of isolated to scattered flooding (including flash floods) and rain-induced landslides are possible, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards as identified in hazard maps. Adjacent or nearby areas may also experience flooding in the absence of such rainfall occurrence due to surface runoff or swelling of river channels.
Light to moderate with at times heavy rains will be experienced over Caraga and Davao Region, SOCCSKSARGEN, Bukidnon, and Misamis Oriental due to the outer rainbands of “Dante”.
