On January 17, 2014, the Low Pressure Area (LPA) in Southeast of Guiuan, Eastern Samar developed into a Tropical Depression (TD) and was named "Agaton" with international name "Lingling" with maximum sustained winds of 55kph near the center causing widespread flooding. TD Agaton maintained its strength as it continued to move. At 10 a.m. of January 20, it weakened into an LPA at 400 km east Southeast of Davao City or 455 km East of General Santos City.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) of U.S.A. confirmed that TD Agaton's rainfall volume was described as "extremely high", when compared to Bagyong Ondoy which dumped around 455 mm rains in Metro Manila for 24 hours. NASA also noted that Agaton's rain was recorded at 154 mm per hour while Ondoy's rain delivered 300 mm rains in 6 hours at its height, or an average of 50 mm per hour.

A total of 244,344 families or 1,148,621 individuals were affected. The recorded fatalities reached 70. A total of 1002 barangays in 118 municipalities and 11 cities in 16 provinces in 5 regions were affected.

This paper shows the post-disaster report on LPA and TD Agaton.
