Typhoons in Brunei

Typhoons occur rarely in Brunei. On average, they happen about once per year. The hardest hit region is Belait.

The typhoon season in the Pacific usually begins with less severe storms in April and does not end until November. The most severe typhoons usually occur in August and September.

Brunei has certainly been affected by the foothills of several typhoons, but during the past 12 months no typhoon reached the inhabited areas on land.
