Three tropical cyclones affected Philippines between September and October: Typhoon Meranti (locally known as Ferdie) which affected the northernmost Philippine province in Batanes; Typhoon Sarika (locally known as Meranti) which made landfall in the central part of Luzon in Baler, Aurora; and Typhoon Haima (locally known as Lawin).

19 October 2016, Philippines/Viet Nam - The Philippine Red Cross is mounting preparedness efforts as Typhoon Haima gains strength, and could possibly develop into a super typhoon later this week before making landfall over the Cagayan area. The typhoon is expected to hit the area early Thursday (20 October) morning. Haima, which developed right after Typhoon Sarika exited the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), could have significant humanitarian impact if it continues on its projected course across northern and central Luzon – the same areas struck by Typhoon Koppu last year.
