Sup Travellers?! Just when you thought that things couldn't have gotten any worse in the Philippines, it did. A couple days after Typhoon Haiyan ravished the country, a new storm followed after, according to the Wall Street Journal. Fortunately enough, Tropical Depression Zoraida landed almost 300 miles away from the areas that felt the full blunt of Haiyan.

Tropical Depression Zoraida is the 25th storm to strike the Philippines this year and the second in just this week. It didn't cause as much damage as its predecessor, however, and it has since been downgraded to a low pressure area. Weather.com reports that Davao City, the large southern island's biggest city and regional home to 2.2 million, saw 3.2 inches of rain over 24 hours. The site adds that some of the areas slammed by Haiyan have seen heavy new showers. Zoraida is moving at a quick clip of 19 miles an hour, and dropping light rain. Weather forecasters predict she will pour light to moderate rains from Tuesday through early Thursday, mostly in the southern region of Mindanao, around 600 miles from Manila. 

If you want to be a part of the relief effort to help the Philippines get back on their feet you can visit the Red Cross website and make donations. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
