The Philippines is visited by more than 20 typhoons in a year and most part affected is Batanes province, the northernmost part. The culture of the island province has adapted to the typhoons for their houses are made of stone. Their crops are mostly root crops that are not so vulnerable to strong winds. During the typhoon season, students are in jubilation whenever classes are suspended. Sometimes even just a storm can cause suspension of classes because of the anticipated floods. But sometimes the floods would be too much to handle that Metro Manila would have the evacuation areas filled to the brim. In the season of typhoons and storms, what the government can do is to prepare rescues in anticipation of a calamity while the public is always advised to be aware of the inclement weather. We have no snow but definitely the rains and the winds can wreak more havoc than expected.
