The La Mesa Dam has overflowed its top due to the excessive amounts of rain as well, this in return has also caused increase flooding in the area, but the good news is the intense rains should slow in the coming days, sadly though the rainy season is still on going and then we haft to contend with the possible development of a tropical system to the east of the Philippines at this time.

Meanwhile Haikui has weakened over China and at much relief to the area. Over 500 flights were cancelled this week in Shanghai and flooding continues to be of concern.
While a surprising storm Kirogi hit Hokkaido today packing gusty winds and rough seas, this storm was downgraded to a remnant low before making landfall but it still was packing the punch of a tropical storm as it moved in to Extreme Northern Japan.
