Typhoon Goni hits the Philippines, killing 4 and displacing hundreds

The Daily Mail reports:

“Four people died and hundreds fled their homes on Friday when a category three typhoon bore down on the northern Philippines, disaster officials said.


Civil defence and regional police officials said four people died, one by drowning and three buried by landslides. Three others were injured and another was unaccounted for.

“We evacuated more than 400 people in Cagayan and Batanes provinces, which bore the brunt of the typhoon,” Norma Talosig, civil defence regional director, told reporters. “They were moved to higher and safer ground because of rising floodwaters and possible storm surge.”

More than 300 people were also evacuated in the mountainous Cordillera region, which was threatened by landslides.”
