Typhoon Reming (disambiguation)

A combination of strong winds, heavy rain, and volcanic ash can bear catastrophic effects to nature and civilization. Such is the case of typhoon Reming which made its landfall on the Bicol Region in the Philippines on the 29th of November 2006. Volcanic ash suspended on the upper stratum of the Mayon Volcano, most likely from the previous volcanic activity 3 months before, descended in the form of lahar on Legaspi City, capital of the Albay province due to heavy rain, causing severe damages to property and loss of lives. Property damages included houses toppling due to the soil degrading into the rivers; some properties were buried in volcanic ash. Flooding of various areas also occurred.

Typhoon Durian (international designation: 0621, JTWC designation: 24W, designated Typhoon Reming by PAGASA and sometimes called Super Typhoon Durian) was an intense storm that wreaked havoc in the Philippines, causing massive loss of life when mudslides from the Mayon Volcano buried many villages. According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, Durian was the 24th tropical depression, 23rd tropical storm, 14th typhoon and 7th super typhoon of the 2006 Pacific typhoon season. It was also the 21st named storm and 14th typhoon of the season recognised by the Regional Specialized Meteorological Centre for tropical cyclones in this region, the Japan Meteorological Agency. The name Durian was submitted to the naming list by Thailand, which refers to a fruit, Durio zibethinus.While international aid has been forthcoming, more donor contributions are still needed to support the relief and recovery of the victims of Typhoon Reming. Death in the Land of Encantos (2007) was made immediately after the typhoon Reming/Durian devastated the town of Bicol (where the director had shot his previous two films), killing and displacing many families. The nine-hour film consists of two disparate threads the first of which plays out as a straightforward documentary where a filmmaker interviews the people affected by the disaster and gathers their opinion about the causes and consequences of the typhoon. The second thread in the film follows a fictional triad of artists who too live in the region of Bicol. Benjamin Agusan (Roeder Camanag) is a poet who has just returned from Russia and has discovered that his ex-lover has been buried under the outpouring of the volcano Mt. Mayon that was triggered by Reming. Then there are his friends Teodero (Perry Dizon), the level headed ex-poet who is now a fisherman, and Catalina (Angeli Bayani), a painter-sculptor who uses the debris spewed out by the volcano for her art. Benjamin is mentally disintegrating and has visions of his childhood and of his stay in Russia now and then. He is also hunted down by the government, which seems to have an agenda of killing all the soldiers and artists involved in the resistance, for his contribution to the anarchist movement. Diaz uses abstract time when dealing with sequences involving Benjamin wherein his immediate past, distant past and present (and possibly nightmares) reside in the same physical space, at times, like in (1974) and (1994).A combination of strong winds, heavy rain, and volcanic ash can bear catastrophic effects to nature and civilization.

Over a thousand lives are estimated to have been lost, and over 180,000 houses have been totally destroyed by Reming alone. While not scientifically verified, it is clear that the cumulative impact of these events has contributed to the scale of devastation inflicted by Typhoon Reming. As of 12 December, close to eight million people were affected to varying degrees. Cumulative economic losses are estimated at US$ 300 million. Estimated damages arising from earlier disasters before the four deadly typhoons is $439million. Overall estimated losses to the country for 2006 amount to $1,614 million.
