Description:
Due to its geographic location along the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire and the Typhoon Belt, the Philippines face diverse natural disasters such as typhoons and floods among others. Since 2006, it has been consistently among those countries most often hit by natural disasters, and in 2009, it topped the list, ranking third in terms of mortality and second in terms of number of victims. Tropical Storm Ondoy (International Name Ketsana) caused the worst flood recorded for the Manila region in more than 40 years. Landfall occurred in the early morning of September 26th, 2009, and it crossed the country within 12 hours leaving behind an unusual high volume of rain and widespread flooding. The rainfall recorded was about 450 mm7, which can be related statistically to an event that happens once every 180
years.
