1. They form only over warm ocean waters near the equator.
2. The season was above-average, producing 29 storms, 13 typhoons, and 7 super typhoons. It was an event in the annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation, in which tropical cyclones form in the western Pacific Ocean. The season ran throughout 2018, though most tropical cyclones typically develop between May and October.
3. Tropical Storm Washi, known locally as Sendong, swept across the Mindanao region from 16 to 18 Dec 2011, bringing strong winds and heavy rains that caused massive flooding, flash floods and landslides.
4. These Oort Cloud comets can take as long as 30 million years to complete one trip around the Sun. Each comet has a tiny frozen part, called a nucleus, often no larger than a few kilometers across. The nucleus contains icy chunks, frozen gases with bits of embedded dust.
5. Halley's Comet or Comet Halley, officially designated 1P/Halley, is a short-period comet visible from Earth every 75–76 years.
6. There are six main requirements for tropical cyclogenesis: sufficiently warm sea surface temperatures, atmospheric instability, high humidity in the lower to middle levels of the troposphere, enough Coriolis force to develop a low pressure center, a pre-existing low level focus or disturbance, and low vertical wind
7. Faults don't actually generate earthquakes - that's a result of Plate tectonics. The movement of the plates creates stress, which builds up and up until the rock cracks and moves. ... That's why earthquakes tend to happen along existing fault lines - especially in areas that get a lot of earthquakes.
9. When a sudden displacement of a large volume of water occurs, or if the sea floor is suddenly raised or dropped by an earthquake, big tsunami waves can be formed. The waves travel out of the area of origin and can be extremely dangerous and damaging when they reach the shore.
10. The fault trace is the intersection of a fault with the ground surface; also, the line commonly plotted on geologic maps to represent a fault. Fault surface trace of the Hector Mine fault after the October 16, 1999 M7.1 rupture
"Not really sure with the answers."
it actually depends on the weather
The waters of the Philippines are mostly warm, especially at sea level this is due to the country’s location on the planet. The nation lies above the Equator and enjoys the year-round tropical weather.
warm not cold as it is tropical
