In the area of where heavy rainfall is predicted, the agency said “There are increased chances of flashflood events on roads, settlements, farmlands and bridges which can disrupt vehicular traffic and reduce visibility.”

It, however, advised members of the public “to exercise restraint when going out, keep monitoring the situation, avoid low-lying areas and fast flowing runoff waters.”

The forecast added, “Also, there are chances of moderate to heavy rainfall events especially during the first and the third days which can reduce horizontal visibility, increasing the likelihood of cars skidding off the road and chances of car crashes, and likely delays in flight operations. Hence, the public is advised to be prepared for these events to avoid damages from rain-related hazard.”
