This storm will easily become a tropical storm by tomorrow evening if its not already.

Indeed. Upgraded overnight to a tropical storm. (International name Tembin: always a bit confusing)

I'm hoping this storm will be more merciful too, but based on the latest rainfall forecast it's looking like a repeat and possibly for the same areas that suffered in 2011. A lot of people are going t

The hills, rivers and lowlands are the only real threat

Well that narrows it down...;)

Fortunately, this looks like a fast mover. Heavy rain but it won't sit and dump on the Philippines. Viet Nam should see the worst of it.

But I hope nobody's overly alarmed by this tropical depression

We have relatives in Ormoc that will come for the holiday...already freaking out. I told them Leyte probably will only get a sprinkle, (Mindinao's turn on this one), but come on over...let the party begin!!!

Good luck to all who are traveling for the holiday

Well, if anyone's feeling left out...looks like you'll get another chance to participate in the fun.

We had Urduja and now Vinta and sometime after Christmas and towards New Year we should expect Wilma.

Always happy to bring good news. HO Ho ho.

   Yes I mistakenly named the Pablo storm but it was the Washi storm I was talking about. It too hit close to the holidays and everyone was in the holiday mode meaning most managers and government officials were vacationing and all fire and rescue crews were operating on minimum personal. This made recovery much more difficult as it took time for the primary decision makers and crew workers to get back to their posts. I remember it had been early rains several weeks before the storm arrived just as it has done before this storm. That is why I commented that I hope this storm is more merciful. 

I'm hoping this storm will be more merciful too, but based on the latest rainfall forecast it's looking like a repeat and possibly for the same areas that suffered in 2011. A lot of people are going to see 8 to 10 inches of rain with isolated areas seeing over a foot which would be similar amounts to what fell with Washi. Most of this rain will fall in a six to eight hour period over any given location, so flash flooding and landslides will be a big problem if this forecast model ends up being correct. The heaviest rain will fall in the eastern half of Mindanao between now and 6am, and the western half between 6am and into the evening tomorrow.

It looks like Tropical Storm Vinta is going to make land fall very close to the same place Typhoon Pablo did in 2012. This is a screenshot of the radar at about 230.

We didn't get a whole lot of rain here in Davao City overnight from Vinta, but there is a lot of runoff flowing into the Davao River from heavy rains upstream that is causing some major flooding at this time. There are a lot of evacuations taking place and many people are trapped in the second floors of their homes and on the rooftops in areas along the River.  The people were caught off guard because of the little rainfall that fell last night and today the weather was actually pretty nice with no rain at all from mid-morning into this evening. The water only started rising rapidly late this afternoon, and they are continuing to rise. The warning sirens have been going off in the Bucana area off and on for the past hour or so and there is a lot of emergency traffic on the streets.

Below are some pictures that have been posted on Facebook over the past hour or so:

Even the President's Secretary Christopher Go is helping with water rescues.

We had some wind and heavy rainfall here which caused a brownout, but power was eventually restored late this morning so we came through OK. I imagine folks in Butuan and CDO will have some issues with flooding for a few more days and I hope there were little incidences of mudslides. This tropical storm dropped a lot of rainfall but luckily it moved quickly across the island. When the ground is already saturated and rivers are already channeling the runoff of the previous rains, than even a mild tropical storm should not be taken too lightly. For a lot of people this proved to be a miserable holiday.

All business along the beach in Sipalay Negros closed early by mayors request last night, anticipating surge or waves at high tide last night.  No rain all night.  and I doubt the closures were necessary here.  Just being cautious I suppose.
