Here in Cebu it's quite sheltered. Luzon to the north, Negros to the west, Samar to the east and Mindanao to the south.
This is the spot to be. The last major typhoon to smash into this island was in 1991 (they called it 'Roofing/Rooping?'), my girlfriend doesn't remember the spelling. Luzon gets a super typhoon every year at least, and 5-8 typhoons make landfall in a standard season, I believe.
Which is why, naturally, the majority of this country's infrastructure and tax money
goes to Luzon. Don't put it somewhere like Cebu, where there are literally zero natural disasters. ::eyeroll::
