More recently, aside from the period of Japanese occupation, the United States retained sovereignty over the islands until 1945. After World War II, the Philippines was recognized as an independent nation. Since then, the Philippines has often had a tumultuous experience with democracy, which includes the overthrow of a dictatorship by a nonviolent revolution.

Location of the Philippines in South East Asia

Location

The Philippines is a sovereign island country in Southeast Asia situated in the western Pacific Ocean. It consists of 7,107 islands, north and East of Indonesia.

Its location on the Pacific Ring of Fire and close to the equator makes the Philippines prone to earthquakes and typhoons, but also endows it with abundant natural resources and some of the world's greatest biodiversity

Typhoon season is primarily during the months of June through October. Most of these sweep in from the Eastern Pacific, with wind speeds up to 200 KM. per hour.

The Philippines also has a number of active volcanoes, and is regularly having many areas evacuated due to the volcanoes erupting. The most recent occurrence that affected large areas of the country was that of Mount Pinatubo, in June of 1991. Large areas of the Island of Luzon were covered by Lahar (the local name for dust from the volcano) to a depth of 3 - 4 meters.
