MANILA , Philippines - The government has raised storm warnings in three areas in the northernmost part of the country due to typhoon 'Hanna'. 
 
In a situation report posted on its website Friday night, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said public storm signal no. 2 has been hoisted over Batanes province while storm signal no. 1 has been raised over Calayaan and Babuyan Group of Islands.
 
The public storm signal over Northern Cagayan has been lifted. 
 
The NDRRMC said that though 'Hanna' has not made landfall in any part of the country, monsoon rains may trigger landslides and flashfloods in Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan) and Western Visayas.
 
Other parts of the country, including Ilocos provinces, Cordillera, the rest of Cagayan, Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon), and Bicol region, will continue to experience light to moderate rains and isolated thunderstorms, the NDRRMC added. 
 
PAGASA, the state-run weather bureau, said Hanna is expected to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Saturday.
