Just days after super typhoon Haiyan leveled huge swathes of the Philippines, a new storm threatens the devastated country as it struggles in rescue and cleanup efforts.

Tropical depression Zoraida reached the Filipino island of Mindanao on Monday and is expected to accelerate northwest. The storm is projected to make landfall in Surigao del Sur Tuesday morning, the Philippines Star reported.

The newspaper added that classes were suspended in seven areas of the island.

Four days after super typhoon Haiyan made landfall, rescue workers in the Philippines continue searching for survivors of the year's strongest storm. According to some estimates, more than 10,000 people have perished in the disaster.

"I was talking to the people of Tacloban," Senior Presidential aide Rene Alemendras told the Associated Press. "They said 'we were ready for the wind. We were not ready for the water.'"
