Tropical Storm Kai-Tak moved through the central and southern Philippines over several days and weakened to a remnant low pressure area in the South China Sea.
As it moved over the country, NASA found that the storm generated heavy amounts of rainfall.
Tropical storm Kai-Tak was nearly stationary at times as it drenched the Philippines from Dec. 14 through 18.
The storm caused major flooding and landslides.
Many homes, roads and bridges were reported destroyed by landslides.
A rainfall accumulation analysis of Tropical Cyclone Kai-Tak was derived from NASA's Integrated Multi-satellitE Retrievals data (IMERG) for the period from December 13 to 18, 2017.
