Cyclone  in Philippines

Philippines had not even recovered from destruction caused by tropical storm Kai-Tek and another tropical storm Tembin is all set to hit Philippines again.

According to Skymet Weather, tropical Storm Tembin had developed somewhere in between Palau and Mindanao in the Philippines during the late-night hours of Wednesday.


Tembin is following the same route that of Kai-Tak and is most likely to make landfall over island nation during the wee hours of Friday. With this, another spell of torrential rains accompanied with squally winds are likely lash Philippines this weekend. Threat of landslide and mudslide looms large over the region.

As per weathermen, Tembin would be a fast moving system and is most likely to clear Philippines during the next 24 hours. After battering Philippines, the system would venture into South China Sea while maintaining its strength of a tropical storm. In fact, Tembin may gain more strength as it move forward into open waters.

However, once the system moves into South China Sea, it is not likely to follow the track followed by Kai-Tak. Weather models are predicting that the system would track northwards towards Gulf of Thailand.

Kai-Tak had claimed over 30 lives, while thousands of people were evacuated.
