Amazing photos of the area. I suspect that some of those homes were far too close to the ocean/bay as many are in the US Gulf Coast when these kind of storms hit. Here, there are few if any laws on where homes can be built. So people will build there again and eventually the same thing will occur. The mud slides in the hills though is a different thing. Not much of a way to tell where the ground will give way. All in all it adds up to disaster to those living there...

Gene, when we get serious where to live (Freeport/Subic), is there flood zones that are mapped, or common sense, or you have to ask-research for the history of flooding before you relocate there? Thanks Jerry and Vilma

There are very few flood zones within the Freeport (just the obvious ones near the drainage ditches and creeks). Most housing is high up in the hills...

Within the areas of Olongapo and Barrio Barretto, I would expect flooding depending on how close you are to runoff areas. I doubt that you will find any flood zone maps. Subic town (just west and north of Barretto) was flooded bad too.

Hi, I was going to suggest that Jon answer this question since he lives over that way - but looks like he did already. People that live in that area will have the best info for you.

History doesnt always protect you. My area had never seen this. People living here 20 yrs had NEVER experienced this. Typhoons know no boundaries or rules about history

I don't remember the beach being that close to houses, it used to be at least 100 yds.
