Natural disasters

The Philippines' typhoon season usually runs from May to November. In the event of a typhoon keep informed of developments through the Typhoon 2000 website.

New Zealanders in the Philippines are encouraged to take steps to prepare themselves for the possibility of a typhoon, earthquake or volcanic eruption.   Emergency supplies should include torches and batteries, candles, a first aid kit, canned food and bottled water.  For more information on how you can prepare to protect yourself, your family, home, business and community, click here.

For useful information on earthquakes or volcanic eruptions in the Philippines, visit the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology website.
