Typhoon Megi slams into Philippines

Baguio, Philippines – Typhoon Megi smashed into the northern Philippines yesterday, causing landslides in mountainous areas, whipping up huge waves along the coast and killing at least 10 people.

Forecasters said Megi was the most powerful storm in the world this year and the strongest to hit the Philippines since Typhoon Durian unleashed mudslides that buried entire towns and killed more than 1,000 people.

Megi pummelled remote coastal areas of the northern Philippines with gusts of up to 260 kilometers per hour yesterday morning as it made landfall, tearing roofs off houses and bringing down power lines.

Local television showed footage of debris, including fallen trees and electrical posts, littering the highway leading to Isabela's provincial capital Ilagan just hours after Megi hit land.

Military, police and relief agencies had positioned supplies and rescue units to provide swift assistance to any affected areas, the Civil Defense Office reported.
