Based on the Daily Weather Forecast from PAGASA issued at 4:00 A.M. July 25, 2022, SOCCSKSARGEN will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms due to localized thunderstorms. Severe thunderstorms may trigger landslides in elevated and mountainous areas and wide-spread flooding along low-lying areas adjacent to river systems. Flash floods are also possible along hilly to mountainous areas with narrow streams and rivers. Low-lying coastal municipalities and barangays within the region may experience inundation due to moderate to strong south to southwest winds with moderate to rough (1.2 to 2.6 meters) wave heights.

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.
