The low pressure area that PAGASA was monitoring off Guiuan, Eastern Samar has developed into a tropical depression, which is now designated "Falcon".

According to the latest weather update, the tropical depression was 990 km east of Virac, Catanduanes as of early Monday morning. "Falcon" has maximum sustained winds of 45 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 60 kph. 

It is moving north northwest at 20 kph.

No tropical storm warning signals have been raised yet, but PAGASA says Bicol and Eastern Visayas can expect scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms brought by the tropical depression. MIMAROPA, the rest of the Visayas and Mindanao will also see similar weather because of the Southwest Monsoon.

"Residents in the aforementioned areas, especially those living in areas identified to be at risk of flooding and landslides, are advised to take precautionary measures, coordinate with local disaster risk reduction and management offices, and continue monitoring for updates, especially the Thunderstorm Advisories and Heavy Rainfall Warnings to be issued by PAGASA Regional Services Divisions," PAGASA says.
