Flooding and volcanic activity

In December 2006, Typhoon Durian hit the Philippines.  This brought torrential rain that caused huge floods and mudslides around Mount Mayon, leaving around 800,000 people homeless.

ShelterBox, who worked with local Rotary clubs, sent two response teams and enough tents for 6,000 people to the worst affected area. A BBC reporter accompanied the teams who were the first aid workers to reach most of the victims.
