Mother Nature unleashed two severe typhoons on Southeast Asia last week and over the weekend. A third is set to hit the same region later this week.

Both typhoons caused heavy flooding throughout the Philippines, China and Vietnam, resulting in millions of dollars in damages.

Residents took to Twitter and social media to support each other, make calls for relief aid — and make jokes. Others wondered what they did to deserve three natural disasters in a row.
