Philippines starts evacuations along coast as super typhoon nears

Strong winds lashed trees in Philippines’ coastal areas as residents sought shelter at evacuation centres a day before a super typhoon is set to make landfall. Philippine authorities started to evacuate thousands of people from coastal areas as winds of more than 205 km per hour bore down on the country’s main island.

Typhoon Mangkhut is forecast to make landfall early on Saturday on the northern tip of Luzon island, and will be the strongest of 15 storms to have hit the Philippines this year. Mangkhut has gathered strength since it struck the U.S. Pacific territories of Guam and the Northern Mariana islands overnight on Monday , tearing down trees and power lines and leaving hundreds of people homeless.
