Tropical Depression Pepito intensified and continues to bring rain over most parts of the country, the weather bureau said in  a report by Philippine News Agency.

Pepito now packs maximum sustained winds of 55 kph near the center, and gustiness of up to 70 kph.

It was last seen 410 kilometers east of Virac, Catanduanes, moving west-northwestward at 20 kph.

As per the latest Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) forecast, light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Quezon, Bicol Region, Eastern and Central Visayas, and Mindanao are likely to prevail until Tuesday.

Flooding and rain-induced landslides may occur during heavy or prolonged rainfall, especially in areas highly susceptible to these hazards.

As of 5 p.m., tropical cyclone wind signal No. 1 was raised over Isabela, Aurora, Quirino, eastern portion of Kalinga, eastern portion of Mountain Province, Ifugao, Nueva Vizcaya, Nueva Ecija, and northern portion of Quezon.

Strong to near gale force winds will be experienced in these areas within 36 hours.

Meanwhile, the northeasterly surface wind flow partly enhanced by Pepito may bring strong force to near gale force winds with occasional gusts over Batanes, Babuyan Islands, and the coastal and mountainous areas of northern Ilocos Norte, Apayao, Cagayan, Isabela, Aurora, Quezon, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Albay, Sorsogon, and Northern Samar.

Gale warning is still hoisted over the seaboards of Batanes, Cagayan, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, and Isabela due to rough to very rough seas.

Moderate to rough seas will be experienced in the next 24 hours over the eastern seaboards of Central Luzon and Bicol Region, and the seaboards of Northern Samar and Eastern Samar, PAGASA said.
