Tropical depression to continue flood danger across the Philippines into Tuesday
Residents of the Philippines should remain on alert for the dangers of flash flooding and mudslides as a tropical depression impacts the country.
Known as Tropical Depression Amang in the Philippines, the storm will spread locally heavy rainfall across central and eastern portions of the country into Tuesday.
Despite the storm remaining weak in terms of damaging winds, residents should not let their guard down.
It was only a few weeks ago when a tropical depression, which was given the local name of Usman, killed dozens in the Philippines by unleashing torrential rain, flooding and mudslides.
The current storm is expected to deliver bands of heavy rain across the Philippines from northern Mindanao to southern Luzon.
Slow movement of this storm will allow for rounds of downpours in the same areas. As of Monday night, rainfall of 50-100 mm (2-4 inches) had already fallen in parts of Samar.
Rainfall from the repeated downpours through Tuesday can total 75-150 mm (3-6 inches) with an AccuWeather Local StormMax™ of 250 mm (10 inches).
Residents living in areas prone to flooding and mudslides should remain vigilant of the dangers and be ready to evacuate at a moment's notice.
There can be disruptions to travel and daily routines as officials may be forced to close roads. Remember never to drive through a flooded road to avoid a potentially deadly situation.
Localized downpours may continue to threaten some communities in the eastern Philippines with flooding into the middle of the week as the storm or its moisture lingers over the region.
