On September 26, 2009, the Philippines was hit hard by Typhoon Ketsana (or Ondoy).

According to CNN, it has left at least 240 people dead and has affected nearly 2 million people and forced the evacuation of 567,000. At one point, 80 percent of the capital Manila was under water after experiencing the heaviest rainfall in 40 years.

On October 3, 2009, Typhoon Parma (or Pepeng) slammed into the northern Philippines, triggering floods and landslides and destroying nearly P800 million ($16.8 million) in crops and infrastructure in the country, according to officials and radio reports. More than 300,000 people were affected and a third of those were in temporary shelters. Power and communications have yet to be restored in some areas.
