Is TPS designation possible for the Phillippines?

Given the calamity that has struck the Phillippines recently in the wake of the most powerful storm to have hit land in recent time, a discussion regarding Temporary Protected Status, TPS, for citizens of the Phillippinnes is warranted. TPS may be designated to a country, when conditions exist such as an ongoing armed conflict or a natural disaster that make travel or return to the country dangerous for nationals of that country. Once TPS designation occurs, nationals of that country residing in the U.S. receive a temporary, humanitarian form of relief from removal.
