Super Typhoon Haima hit the Philippines on 19 October, leaving 14 people dead and causing widespread damage to the northern part of the archipelago. Haima made landfall in Cagayan Province on Luzon island, with central winds of 225kph and gusts reaching 315kph. Landslides - which accounted for the 14 people who were killed - and debris scattered by the storm also complicated rescue operations by disrupting access to some locations. Typhoon Sarika additionally hit the Philippines mere days before Haima arrived. While Sarika was a weaker storm, it left three dead and 10,000 homeless.
