Just as if the massive floods weren't enough, the Philippines are now being hit by a super typhoon. It seems that these natural disasters will never stop. There have been quite a lot of them lately. Also it is most always the poorest regions that get hit by these natural disasters. You don't hear much about them hitting Paris or London.

"Super typhoon" bears down on flood-ravaged Philippines
2 October 2009, by Rosemarie Francisco (Reuters)

MANILA (Reuters) - The Philippines declared a nationwide state of calamity on Friday as a "super typhoon" bore down a week after flash floods killed nearly 300 people in and around Manila.

Typhoon Parma, about 150 km (100 miles) east of Luzon, was gaining strength as it churned west-northwest toward the mainland, bringing heavy rain.

It was expected to make landfall in or near the northeastern province of Isabela on Saturday. The area is mountainous and not heavily populated, but Parma was likely to lash Luzon with rain over the next two days, making life worse in flood-hit regions.
