This map presents the estimated total rainfall accumulation for Mindanao, Philippines covering the period 3-4 December 2012. Also presented is the estimated mean average wind speed within the buffer zone of cyclone Bopha as it passed over Mindanao. The total rainfall estimate was derived from the Tropical Rainfall Monitoring Mission (TRMM) precipitation dataset at a spatial resolution of approximately 25km for this region, and the wind speed data was obtained from GDACS. It is possible that precipitation levels may have been underestimated for local areas, and is not a substitute for ground station measurements. The towns of Bataan, Baganga and Cateel have been highlighted as areas of interest and potentially heavily damaged by the cyclone event. The area highlighted by the bounding box represents one of the general areas of reported heavy damages
