Located in the Pacific Ring of Fire, the Philippines is among the most disaster-prone countries, including active volcanoes, frequent earthquakes, and around 20 typhoons a year, causing floods and landslides.

Typhoon Rai, the 15th typhoon to lash the Philippines last year, killed more than 400 people.

The category 5 typhoon destroyed more than 1.7 million houses in eight provinces.

The United Nations estimated over 9.9 million people across the six worst-hit regions were affected by the typhoon

Typhoon Odette intensified into a super typhoon right before its landfall in the southeastern part of the country. The provinces that were severely affected are Agusan del Norte, Bohol, Cagayan de Oro, Lanao del Sur, Negros Occidental, Palawan, and Southern Leyte. 

Thousands were asked to evacuate for safety because of the strong winds and flooding in many areas, and several families lost their homes. Negros Occidental, Palawan, and Tacloban have no access to electricity and roads are blocked with debris. Communication is difficult in several areas across the regions.

Typhoons in the Philippines can occur any time of the year, with the months of June to September being most active, with August being the most active individual month and May the least active. Approximately 20 tropical cyclones enter the Philippine area of responsibility yearly, an area which incorporates parts of the Pacific Ocean, the South China Sea, and the Philippine Archipelago (with the exception of Tawi-Tawi province). In each year, ten cyclones are usually expected to be typhoons, with five having the potential to be destructive ones.
