A low-pressure area near Mindanao could bring moderate to at times heavy rains over Caraga, Davao, and Socsargen today.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration estimated the location of the LPA at 455 kilometers east-southeast of Davao City, Davao del Sur yesterday morning.

Residents in these areas must take precautionary measures against possible flash floods and landslides and coordinate with their local disaster risk reduction and management offices.

Meanwhile, light to moderate rains are expected over Masbate, Catanduanes, Sorsogon, Albay, Camarines Sur, Camarines Norte, Biliran, Eastern Samar, Leyte, Northern Samar, Samar, Southern Leyte, Bohol, Cebu, Negros Oriental, Siquijor, and the rest of Mindanao.
