Tisoy is expected to bring occasional heavy rains over Bicol Region, Samar Provinces and Biliran. Intermittent heavy rains over Northern Cebu, Northern Negros Island, Dinagat Islands, Siargao Island, and the rest of Eastern Visayas for the rest of Monday.

Residents in these areas, especially those living in areas identified to be highly or very highly susceptible to flooding and rain-induced landslides, are advised to coordinate with local disaster risk reduction and management offices, and continue monitoring for updates, PAGASA said.

The weather bureau also warned against a storm surge with height of 1 to 3 meters which may affect several coastal areas in Quezon, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Catanduanes, and Samar.

Tisoy is expected to match the strength of typhoon “Glenda,"which killed 106 people in 2014 and caused around ₱38.6-billion in damage, according to data from the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.

Tisoy will exit Philippine territory on Thursday, PAGASA said.
