Philippines is part of the 'Ring of Fire' so it's kind of common to experience this calamities, We actually don't like Typhoons or Earthquakes but because we have a lot of Volcanoes that usually triggered earthquakes. I remembered the worst Earthquake that I experienced was the 1990 Northern Luzon Earthquake and After shocks. Japan is also part of the Ring of Fire that's why they experienced earthquakes too.

The Ring of Fire is an area where a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean. In a 40,000 km (25,000 mi) horseshoe shape, it is associated with a nearly continuous series of oceanic trenches, volcanic arcs, and volcanic belts and/or plate movements. The Ring of Fire has 452 volcanoes and is home to over 75% of the world's active and dormant volcanoes.[SIZE=2][1][/SIZE] It is sometimes called the circum-Pacific belt or the circum-Pacific seismic belt.

Typhoons-wise, there are certain places that always get hit typhoons, and other places that almost never do.

In our province, we never experienced floods. I guess because we live in the area which is a little bit higher and away from bridges or river or mountainous area so we don't also get landslide. Our drainage system are also well maintained. but earthquakes we cannot avoid that as we have a lot of active volcanoes too but definitely we're far from volcanoes.

Batanes in Northern Luzon actually the place that always hit by typhoons that is why there house are usually made of stones.

One of the worst crime rates in south-east Asia, but that's not too bad since other parts of the world such as latin america and sub-saharan africa have it much worse.
