Because... Oh! Several people have pointed it out already

The "avoided disaster" could mean it "could have been worse" had the Philippines not take drastic emergency measures before it struck? And didn't it "swing south" just a little bit, thus avoiding the more densely populated regions? It's a relative term, I guess...

BBC News is covering that story extensively. It will hit Vietnam... today? Tomorrow? Soon anyhow.

Did you not get the memo??? Obama increased the number of hours in the day so we can pay more taxes.

well technically it's possible. The earth takes about 365.242 days to go around the sun, so technically they could say almost an extra minute per day (24h 0m 57s)

Its the same as how many android devices are activated. If I flash my rom, google considers the new as a new device even though Im only using one device and tried about 10-12 boot roms.

@Jake Justus, yeah having 10,000 people dead doesn't sound like it was a "disaster avoided."

It's because of multi tasking. Say you're watching YouTube absently while browsing IAB.

"Forget the gadgets. The real problem here is why they would report the Philippines "avoids a major disaster."

Damn straight, if there had been in the US it would be the only news story for the next 3 months.

and that's coming from the UK!

If I am on my Xbox and iPhone at the same time for an hour, that's two hours on gadgets.

I hear this is possible due to the new Windows 8 Time Dilation[TM] technology.

Being on your phone for 16 hours and also being on an iPad for 12 hours = 28 hours, with 8 hours left over to sleep. The same waking hours probably can count toward more than one device at a time.
