Later this led to rebellions from the people, and eventually a Philippine assembly was initiated. One Current Event On December 4, 2012, Typhoon Bopha struck the southern Philippine islands. The death toll left by the storm was over 1,000, with hundreds of people declared missing. Hundreds of thousands of peoples homes were wrecked, leaving them no other choice but to go to evacuation shelters. The people were warned beforehand, but because a typhoon had never happened in the southern Philippines in generations, many ignored the chance they had to save themselves.
