My geography teacher gave us a booklet to complete in one day. I've done everything but one question.
"Explain how hydro-meterlogical hazards can compound tectonic hazards in the Philippines" its worth 6 marks and im just so confused. Any help would be appreciated.

Hydrometeorological hazards are typhoons, tornadoes, heavy monsoon rainfall, costal storm surges, flash floods etc. This question is asking you to identify possible links or causations between tectonic hazards, such as an earthquake, ground displacement, volcanic eruption etc and how a hydrometeorological hazard further amplifies or intensifies this effect. The Philippines is made of many large and small islands and is along the destructive plate boundary between the Philippine plate and the Eurasian plate. Think about how an undersea earthquake leads to a tsunami, or heavy rainfall during a volcanic eruption disrupts communication and transport infrastructure, can contaminate water supplies, spread waterborne diseases and so on.

Thank you for the help. I really appreciate it. I was just confused about them using compound. I've never seen it used in a exam question. Lol. I can now actually answer the question.
