PANAHON na naman ng tag-ulan at bagyo na kadalasang nagdudulot ng pagbaha at landslide lalo sa mga bulnerableng lugar sa ating bansa. At taun-taon ay dumadaan sa bansa ang malalakas na bagyo na nagdudulot ng malaking pinsala sa mga komunidad sa siyudad at probinsya.

Ang hazard o panganib ay mga pangyayaring likas o gawa ng tao na maaring magdulot ng pinsala sa buhay, ari-arian, kabuhayan o pagkatigil ng panlipunan (social) at pang-ekonomiyang gawain ng isang komunidad. Ito ay maaaring magresulta sa isang disaster. Ang halimbawa ng mga hazard na madalas maranasan sa Pilipinas ay bagyo, lindol, baha, flashflood, landslide, pagputok ng bulkan, storm surge, tsunami, sunog, giyera at iba pa.
