While the Philippines don't have a nuclear power plant, they do have off shore oil platforms.
We *do* have a nuclear power plant. . . It was just decided never to turn it on. . . thank fuck for that! (Because it was later damaged beyond repair in the Mount Pinatubo eruption of the 90s).
Such a storm would (and did) destroy other kinds of power plants.
I rather suspect those will be put back up on poles and towers rather than taking the opportunity to bury a such of the local grid as possible. The lesson will have to be re-learned.
I believe power pretty much always goes up on poles and over land here, not buried. . . Besides being Typhoon-prone, we're in the pacific ring of fire so are earthquake prone. . . Japan does the same thing. . It can get a little messy, though I'm sure it doesn't have to look like this typical manila example: http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTAIMc75zk7cAb0GAzO1u-uhgfJ1c3_ZqvvLPhURmhtJusKhWXh
