Most yachties are in 'typhoon safe' harbors - my catamaran
is in Tambobo Bay and everything there seems OK. Others are in Carmen, Cebu; Puerto Galera, Mindoro; Subic Bay, Luzon. During this season no one would be near Leyte - it is a typhoon magnet as almost all Pacific typhoons that can, head
to Leyte and then usually go on to Manila. I am currently in Cebu and haven't heard of any problems - but the season is not done; the PI gets around 20 big storms each season.
