Where is the safest place to live in The Philippines?


Recommended Posts

You could always stay in the USA, except:

 

Southeast - prone to hurricanes

Central US - prone to tornadoes

Southwest - prone to summer fires and earthquakes (already destroyed one major city that had to be rebuilt)

Midwest - prone to droughts and heat waves

Northwest - volcanoes and earthquakes

Northern US - snow and blizzards and avalanches (vulnerable to a new ice age)

Western US - site of a supervolcano that would make Pinatubo look like a firecracker

coastal US - flooding and sea level rising from climate change

 

Then there's the risk of overweight and overbearing women, minority groups looking for any excuse to be oppressed, high blood pressure from being overworked, clogged arteries from too much fast food, the original crips and bloods, the KKK, the NSA, the FBI, Jehovah Witnesses, etc.

wow its sure good your know all of this and moved to such a safe place ... ha ha ha

The entire country is on a fault line.  The entire country is susceptible to typhoons. There are volcanoes all over the place in the Philippines.  So what that leaves you with is man made problems if

In terms of natural disasters (earthquakes, typhoons, floods etc.) pollution, disease and man made threats such as crime and terrorism; where is the safest place to live in The Philippines?

 Natural disasters claimed more lives here than anywhere else in the world. That was before the Typhoon and earthquake.

For me, Bukidnon is the safest place to live in this coutry.  reasons are:

  • low risk to thypoon
  • pollution level is low
  • the climate is cool
  • no tsunami
  • basic needs such as food is not a problem.
  • nice resorts
  • people are friendly
  • no traffic

There is probably a reason why the Philippines is a mass of fragmented islands.

Let me add one more factor favoring BGC…

 

From NAIA (T3 is about 10 minutes away if no traffic congestion, I plan 30 to 45 minutes but longer to T2 and T1), you have non-stop access to Asia’s major hub cities, e.g. NRT, ICN, BKK, HKG, SIN, TPE… Also, non-stop flights to major cities, e.g., YVR, YYZ, SFO, LAX, HNL, LHR, SYD, MEL...

 

Did I miss any other? ;)

This sounds more like an escape plan, than a safe living

For those who don't know Typhoons don't form near the equator.

 

Cyclones can't form at the equator because the Coriolis effect, which starts them spinning, is very weak there. But they can certainly form near the equator.

 

Tropical depression 32w (Zoraida) that passed through Mindanao just this week started at something like only 1.5 degrees north and could easily have developed into a typhoon affecting Davao.

 

 

 

If you want to get away from typhoons shouldn't you go far enough south to avoid them?

 

Moving south in the Philippines to avoid typhoons isn't much of a plan.
