Philippine was hit by supertyphoon "YOLANDA/HAIYAN" - 4th strongest tropical cyclone in the world, last November 2013 leaving more than 6 thousands of dead and 36 billions of pesos (as of January 2, 2014) in damages in Visayas region and other parts of the country.

Our country was visited by 20 typhoons every year on the average and since we are archipelago and surrounded by bodies of water and oceans, we are vulnerable on climate change effects.

As a natural laboratory of strong typhoons and climate disasters, accurate weather forecasting, latest technology (use of IBM BLUE Gene Supercomputer), disaster preparedness and awareness (DOST Project NOAH) should be in place in order to help us to mitigate disaster effects and lessen deaths.

Below are PAGASA list of typhoon names for 2014 and 10 auxilliary names in case it exceeded the 25 typhoon names.
