Castaneda added that the LPA is expected to pass through the Visayas and Mindanao, and is also forecast to bring rains over Palawan in the coming days.

"Take precautions against possible flooding and landslides," she said, adding that residents of those areas are urged to monitor updates from PAGASA regional offices.
