3.  What about Typhoons?

Typhoons (cyclones/hurricanes) generally form in this area in Central Micronesia (about 1,000 miles east of the Philippines), at about 8 degrees north latitude.  Due to the rotation of the earth, as they travel west, the storm systems curve northward.  They cross the Philippines usually in the upper half of the Philippines and curve up toward Taiwan.  Our location at Samal Island is about 7 degrees north latitude. 

We occasionally get a little extra rain or wind associated with a typhoon crossing further north, but nothing over about 35 knots--typical summer squall conditions.
