Soudelor brought very heavy rain to the Philippines as it passed through on Thursday. Rainfall at Laoag on Luzon topped 13 inches. While winds are not expected to be a problem as Soudelor moves across southern China and Vietnam, heavy rainfall could easily trigger flooding. This area has seen above-normal rainfall for the past few months. So already saturated hillsides could easily produce mudslides.
