As tropical storm Kai-tak (locally known Urduja) leaves the Philippines Area of Responsibility (PAR), another tropical storm has entered PAR named Tembin (locally known as Vinta). TS Kai-tak dumped an estimated 300-500 mm of rain in eastern and central Visayas which caused flooding and landslides along its path. TS Tembin intensified as it made landfall in Davao Oriental in the morning of 22 December and crossed various provinces across Mindanao causing flash floods and landslides, which rendered several roads impassable.
