Deadly Landslide Strikes the island of Leyte, Philippines

Taking a closer look at this landslide in Baybay, Leyte that has left at least two dozen dead and over 100 missing.

Dangerous rains continue across Visayas in the Philippines

Agaton / Megi continues to weaken today and really at this point is more or less an inflow band, for now, #Typhoon #Malakas located west of Guam. The good news as Malakas intensifies it continues to pull in the moisture from Agaton and thus as we head through our Wednesday conditions across Visayas will finally start to improve. Until that happens expect widespread areas to see an additional 50-200mm of rainfall resulting in yet more flooding and the possibilities of landslides.

This after destructive landslides have wrecked parts of Leyte, Samar and Cebu while much of Visayas for that matter has seen days of heavy rainfall resulting in flooding.
