Philippines after Typhoons Chan Hom and Kujira

Philippines - May 12th, 2009

Within a week’s time, the northern Philippines were hit by two tropical cyclones, Kujira (01W) and Chan Hom (02W), that left behind more than 42 inches of rainfall to various areas, states NASA.

The image focuses on part of the island of Luzon. Manila, the capital of the Philippines, is located on Manila Bay (bottom), near the green Laguna de Bay Lake (bottom right).

The rivers in the image are brown from sediments dredged up by the heavy rainfall. These sediments can be seen flowing from rivermouths along the coastline, particularly in Manila Bay. To the north, the waters of the Gulf of Lingayen (top left) are clearer.

The storms displaced more than 400,000 people, the vast majority of whom have yet to return home, the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) reported.

The heavy rains and landslides from the latest tropical cyclone, Chan Hom, killed 43 people after making landfall on May 7th.

It also displaced more than 161,020 people in 51 towns, six cities and 11 provinces in Luzon, the country’s largest island.

Typhoon Kujira, which made landfall on May 2nd, caused 33 deaths and displaced 246,170, according to the NDCC.

The country’s Defence Secretary stated that many casualities occurred, despite early warnings about the typhoons, because many people in coastal areas did not have anywhere to go and tried simply to reinforce their wooden homes.

The state weather bureau said the storms, as well as a tropical depression that proceeded them, ushered in the early arrival of the annual typhoon season, which kills tens of thousands and causes widespread damage. About 20 typhoons strike the Philippines every year.
