YEAR’S STRONGEST TYPHOON SLAMS PHILIPPINES, 4 DEAD


WINDY WRATH: Typhoon Haiyan, possibly the most powerful ever to hit land, slammed into the city of Legaspi in the south of Manila in the Philippines on Friday. The 275kmph wind gusts tore roofs off buildings and waves which were 5-6 feet high washed away homes. The strongest typhoon in the world this year forced nearly 750,000 people to flee, flooded villages and raised fears of widespread casualties. At least four people were killed and seven were injured in the storm, national disaster agency spokesman Rey Balido said. The death toll could rise as more reports arrive. The dense clouds and heavy rains made the day seem almost as dark as night. The super storm knocked out power and communications in several provinces. But the nation appeared to avoid a major disaster as the rapidly moving typhoon blew away before wreaking more damage, officials said
