Typhoons and Monsoons
Typhoons may occur year-round. There is no official typhoon season, but the majority of typhoons tend to form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean between June and December.
Sudden flooding and mudslides are regular occurrences in many countries during typhoons, as well as during monsooon season, which occurs throughout East, South, and Southeast Asia. Transportation and other services may be affected, including emergency and medical care and water and food supplies. Canadians should monitor local weather reports, avoid disaster areas and contact the nearest Canadian government office if they require assistance.
