The low-pressure area (LPA) located east of Surigao del Norte and the shear line will continue to bring rain over the Visayas, as well as in Mindanao, the Philippine, Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Friday.
The state weather bureau warned of possible flooding and landslide due to continuous rains.
The LPA last spotted 90 kilometers east of Surigao City, Surigao del Norte is forecast to trigger widespread rain in Visayas, as well as parts of Luzon and Mindanao.
Heavy downpours triggered flooding in some parts of Bohol.
Some 626 families or 728 individuals in Bohol were forced to evacuate as several major rivers and dams overflowed.
