Meanwhile, a thunderstorm advisory has been raised over parts of Mindanao.

PAGASA said moderate to at times heavy rainshowers with lightning and strong winds are expected over some portions of Zamboanga del Sur and Basilan within the next one to two hours.

The weather bureau said these conditions are being experienced in some areas of Zamboanga del Norte (Sibuco, Sirawai), Zamboanga City, and Zamboanga Sibigay (Tungawan, Talusan, Mabuhay, Olutanga).

PAGASA said they may affect nearby areas and may persist within one to two hours.
