Typhoon Rai (known in the Philippines as Typhoon Odette) made landfall over the Philippines on 16 December, causing at least 252 fatalities, floods and damage across a wide part of the southern Philippines.

Rai was a Category 5 Super Typhoon when it made landfall, but people had been urged to evacuate two days earlier and mandatory evacuations began on 15 December as the storm grew in strength. It is estimated that almost 500,000 people had to leave their homes to find shelter or move to safer ground.

Surigao City lost all power and communications when the storm struck, with power lines knocked down. Houses in coastal areas were destroyed, and many roads were blocked off by debris. It was estimated that 99% of the people in Surigao were affected by the storm.

Rai affected six provinces in total, with damage reported to Bohol, Cebu, Negros Oriental, Negros Occidental, Siargao, and Dinagat Islands.
