2012 Typhoon Season

Until October 24 all typhoons passed by but did not hit the Philippines. Among these passers-by were 3 super typhoons: GUCHOL/Butchoy in June, SANBA/Karen and JELAWAT/Lawin in September.

Then came 3 killer typhoons: SON-TINH/Ofel on October 24, BOPHA/Pablo on December 3 and finally the tropical storm WUKONG/Quinta on December 26. They all hit the Philippines and caused fatalities.

BOPHA/Pablo was the most powerful typhoon to hit Mindanao in decades.  BOPHA/Pablo was deadlier than Tropical Storm WASHI/Sendong which killed 1,268 people a year ago. But its toll still remains far below that of Tropical Storm THELMA/Uring, the country’s most lethal storm on record that left more than 5,000 people dead in 1991.
