Typhoon Kammuri (Tisoy) is the Philippines’ 20th typhoon this year, highlighting that the Philippines is perhaps the country most vulnerable to and most impacted by strong typhoons.
Scientists are saying that the warming of the world is making weather events such as typhoons stronger. Typhoon Kammuri is not a super typhoon, but its impacts will still be heavily felt by Filipino communities which are in its path.
Greenpeace teams are on the ground to join and bear witness to Filipinos rising up in the face of the climate emergency.
