A single source reference on tropical weather predictions. With a traditional focus on the upper Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast we've maintained links to track all Atlantic Basin, Caribbean and eastern Pacific storm systems.

Tropical Storm Aere: May 6-11, 2011

New Post by Slipstream on location in Hong Kong:

Tropical storm Aere (or Bebeng as it is referred to in the Philippines), left nine people dead as it pounded eastern provinces of the Philippines and brought flooding to the capital [Manila], leaving thousands stranded in ports”. Bloomberg (SOURCE)

Three of the dead were a result of landslides, and much of the flooding was attributed to blocked drains, caused by improperly disposed garbage and poor drain maintenance.
