Based on the Daily/Localized Weather Forecast from PAGASA issued at 6:00 A.M. September 20, 2022, SOCCSKSARGEN will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to Localized Thunderstorms.

This Office encourages the Local Disaster Risk Reduction Management Offices (LDRRMOs) in the region to refer to the MGB-XII geohazard maps and information in identifying safe areas for evacuation and appropriate evacuation routes. Utilization of these maps and data to properly inform residents living in geologically hazardous areas to take precautionary measures is highly encouraged.
