Despite failing to develop into a depression or tropical storm, a tropical low continues to inundate the Philippines with torrential and is responsible for two deaths thus far.
Two residents in the northern suburbs of Manila, the Philippine capital, were crushed to death early Tuesday when the stone wall beside their home succumbed to the rain, reported the AFP.
Rain began soaking Manila late Monday night (local time, Monday afternoon EDT) and amounted to 3.46 inches less than 12 hours later.
Up to waist-deep flood waters covered low-lying areas of the capital after a nearby dam overflowed, forcing officials to open its gates.
Garbage in the city's streets are worsening the flooding situation by clogging sewers and drains.
Unfortunately, more rain will pour down through early Wednesday (local time) as a tropical low continues to crawl westward. Additional spottier showers and thunderstorms will follow for the rest of the week.
Areas across the northern Philippines were hardest hit including, Alabat where more than 10 inches of rain fell on Monday, followed by over 4 inches on Tuesday. The heavy rain across the rest of Luzon, the northern most island of the Philippines, lead to local flooding problems and closed some schools.
The low failed to form into a depression or tropical storm prior to reaching the Philippines, but the AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center is monitoring the possibility for development after the low leaves the Philippines and churns through the South China Sea in the upcoming couple of days.
Even if the low is once again unsuccessful at developing, far southern China and northern Vietnam will still be a risk for late-week flooding downpours.
