The government weather bureau warned Wednesday of the "Very High Risk" of flooding and landslides in areas affected by the Low Pressure Area (LPA) amid the lingering effects of the weather disturbance that may last until the weekend. PAG-ASA said that the LPA over the landmass of either Visayas or Mindanao will persist for the next 2 to 3 days and may increase risk of flash floods and landslides due to the already saturated soil. As of mid-Wednesday, the LPA was at 245 Km South East of Borongan City in Eastern Samar or 165 Km East of Surigao City. The weather disturbance will bring cloudy skies with moderate to occasionally heavy rains and thunderstorms over Northern Samar, Eastern Samar, Samar, Biliran, Leyte, Southern Leyte, Cebu, Bohol, Siquijor, Negros Oriental, Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Dinagat Islands, Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur, Bukidnon, Camiguin, Lanao del Norte, Misamis Occidental, Misamis Oriental, Compostella Valley, Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur and Davao Oriental. Strong to gale force North Easterly surface wind flow associated with the surge of the North East Monsoon is expected to affect the seaboards of Luzon and Eastern seaboard of Visayas. PAG-ASA advised small sea crafts and fishing vessels not to venture out into the sea due to big waves generated by North East Monsoon.
