While many across the southern and central Philippines are still recovering from rounds of heavy rainfall this month, more heavy rainfall from Tropical Storm Kajiki will fall into Saturday.
Rains from former Tropical Storm Lingling, combined with the local monsoon, resulted in torrential rainfall, totaling more than 1220 mm (48 inches) in some parts of eastern Mindanao earlier in January.
This event affected more than one million people, killing at least 70 people with more still missing according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Center of the Philippines.
Even though rainfall has been much lighter across the region prior to the arrival of Kajiki, nearly 50,000 people were still displaced from their homes as heavy rainfall returned on Friday.
As people attempt to return to their homes and rebuild as necessary, this round of heavy rainfall will further delay recovery efforts.
After days of drifting westward across the Philippine Sea, Kajiki finally organized into a named depression just a few hundred miles to the east of the Philippines on Thursday. On Friday night, local time, Kajiki organized just enough to acquire minimal tropical storm status. Despite the classification, the main threat with Kajiki remains the potential for flooding rain.
The heaviest rainfall moved into the the southeast Philippines Friday and will press westward across the interior of the south-central Philippines Friday night into Saturday morning before exiting off the west coast by the end of the day Saturday.
Total rainfall of 100-200 mm (4-8 inches) is expected with local amounts around 300 mm (12 inches). This amount of rainfall across the southern and central Philippines can quickly lead to widespread flooding, while hindering recovery efforts across the region.
Unlike the last tropical depression to impact the region, Kajiki is expected to continue on a westward track which will generally limit the heaviest rainfall to a 24-hour time period, instead of occurring for several days in a row.
