MANILA, Philippines - On July 2, 2003, Isabela Province of Luzon Island in the Philippines suffered its worst typhoon in ten years. From 6 a.m. to 5:50 p.m., Imbudo, a Category Four typhoon, battered the region with winds of over 200 km/h. Although the rainfall was not heavy, the winds were strong enough to uproot trees that were decades old. Many electric poles collapsed, causing a blackout that covered the entire province. The government estimated it would take one month to restore electricity to its residents.
