Default Typhoons

I know farther north we get in the Philippines more typhoons are there. How do all the foreigners deal with so many typhoons each year? I lived in the Davao area and a lot less storms there. I was there 9 months and never had a typhoon. I know there are some rare ones but not a normal typhoon pattern.

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.

It's no different to the US hurricane season. In the twenty years we have had our place in Bataan we have probably only had one or two direct hits.

We're are close to you over in Central Luzon. In over 15 years I can remember only one typhoon that came close to us and took out our electric power for maybe four days or so.
We get a lot of threats here and always stock up on extra food and supplies each time but mostly just a lot of (needed) rain. For us this is a great area to live in--as long as Mt Pinatubo and Mt Arayat stay quiet.

I live in central Luzon and we get hit often and 4 years ago lost 3/4 of our roof. It's been a learning lesson for us but next year we are going to change out our rotting roof for either metal and bars or concrete another issue with wood is termites and ants.

I was stationed on Guam 10 years and it frequently gets hit similar to central Luzon and the buildings are completely concrete including the roof.

No I would say southern Luzon (Bicol) and central Visayas are typhoon alley. The typhoon season is only about 3 months so every other month would be 2 typhoons.

That is one of the reasons, we decided to settle in Davao.

Most typhoons are no more than a windy day. I think I'd take my chances rather the live in Davao.

All interesting thoughts to take on board. I hope we survive when we are there. Our tenant has not reported any damage to our house on the beach at Tamacalao (Bacnotan) with the last two that hit in the last few months, signal 4 to 5 on the east coast before crossing land to arrive on the west coast at 2/3.
The house has been there 8 years and still standing,,,,,,,,,, LOL, my biggest concern is not the typhoons but if ever hit with a tsunami then its all over red rover for us. Nature, we have no control, driving, walking, living in any country has risks beyond our control and while we try to pad ourselves for protection when your number is up? Personally I'm looking forward to the challenges in my new chosen country. Typhoons, traffic and scammers.

Cheers, Steve.

Living in the Central Visayas in Iloilo City is not bad as Guimeras Island seems to deflect the hard portions of it storms to the north & south of us. Mostly all we get here is a bit of extra wind and a bit more rain than normal. There is some street flooding, but only a couple feet, not even close to some of the pics I have seen in Manila and some other places.
