Dr. Andreas Klippe’s article was published on Philippine Daily Inquirer’s November 23, 2020 issue, as well as to The MAP Memo’s November 24, 2020 issue.

The world is drowning. While it still continues to battle with a global pandemic, yet another calamity has literally drowned several parts of Asia and America. In the beginning of November 2020, Typhoon Rolly, called Goni internationally, affected some areas of the Philippines. The biggest impact was experienced in the Bicol region. A week after, as the Filipinos started rebuilding their lives and livelihoods, they were battered again by another storm, the Typhoon Ulysses, international name Vamco. Ulysses, after affecting eight regions in the country, went straight to Vietnam, damaging everything that gets on its way. This situation is not unique to Asia, though. Reports show that Hurricane Iota which pummeled Central America has brought heavy rain, extreme winds and storm surges over the region. Iota is recorded as the 30th hurricane to cross the region.
