Hey Rick, funny I was looking at this exact picture early this morning and thought, wow this is worth posting for the members. I got waylaid. Quite amazing that in only 25 years virtually all of PH. has had a typhoon or severe tropical depression, looks like Zamboanga and the Sulu archipelago get off unscathed.

Well nearly 60 years living in Oz with no cyclones as we call them here experienced as we live too far south,,,,,, like Mindanao so for me a change is as good as a holiday, prepare well we will.
Just saw this:

Another thing to worry about/consider as there are many places in PH that suffer earthquakes. All the fun of the fare.

BTW A Happy and prosperous new year to all.

Cheers, Steve.

Since I mentioned tsunamis in an earlier post I have been doing a little reading, found this site that some may find interesting though I'm sure many have already done their research.

https://www.worlddata.info/asia/phil...s/tsunamis.php

Also shows earthquake and volcanic activity over long periods.

Cheers, Steve.

Just like the luzon area gets hit at least 10 times a year. Wow. I like living on the Mindanao island. Just stay in the central island location. The nine months I was there I never even seen a thunderstorm. A lot of rain but not bad storms.

I live near Cagayan De Oro on the north east tip of Mindanao, been here four years and never had a typhoon. Had one or two bad thunderstorms but that's about it (so far)...

hey coppyboy

That is why I like the Mindanao area. There are typhoons there but rare. If they have one it will be north of Davao city. I can't imagine getting slammed with typhoons every other month. I also wouldn't want to live next to the sea on the east side of Mindano around tandag and Surigao.if there is a typhoon there you will get hit full force from it.

No where gets slammed every other month. They are actually quite rate in any one specific spot, once every several years.

A lot of locals call any hard rain a typhoon and these do happen a lot, Also a real typhoon has a pretty small damage track but can throw off rain and some windy conditions over a much larger area but the damage is done where the eye tracks across.
