How many Tropical Cyclones do we have?
On the average, 19 tropical cyclones enter the Philippines Area of
Responsibility (PAR)
About 8 9 TC cross the Philippines
At least 1 TC per year may not make its landfall but still inflict damage
and casualties in the country
June to December may be considered typhoon season, with its peak
during the months of July and August
Most of the destructive and deadly typhoons usually occur during the
latter part of the season, notably, September, October and
November, when TC generally move to the eastern coastal
seaboard of the country
