Typhoon Rai struck the Philippines on16thDecember 2021, damaging and inundating many coastal areas in the Visayas region.The typhoon brought with it violentwinds, storm surges and high waves, which left a trail of destructionand debris in its wake. Inorder to understand the various damage mechanisms, the authors conducted a field survey to measure the water level heights reached by the storm surge at several locations in the provinces of Cebu and Bohol. As part of the survey, local residents were interviewed to understand the phenomena and survey the heightsreached by the storm surge. The maximum storm surge level measured were 2.54 mand 4.06m across coastaltowns in the provinces of Cebu and Bohol, respectively. Finally, some interesting characteristics of the storm surge are summarised, and the lessons learnt in terms of disaster risk management are discussed.
