Tropical Storm Kai-tak is expected to strengthen over the coming days, allowing more flooding rain to fall in the hard-hit Philippines.
"Portions of the Philippines will get 10-20 inches of rain," AccuWeather Expert Senior Meteorologist Jim Andrews said.
Manila, the capital of Philippines, received about 30 inches of rain during the past week, leading to deadly flooding. Some nearby communities were inundated by closer to 40 inches of rain.
By the middle of the week, this system could also impact Taiwan, another area which has been affected by Typhoon Saola less than two weeks ago.

Beyond Taiwan, a landfall in China is not out of the question and if the system would obtain typhoon strength it would be the fourth typhoon to make landfall in China in the past month.
All interests in the northern Philippines and Taiwan should monitor the progress of this system closely over the next few days.
