Typhoon Mangkhut makes landfall in Philippines
Super Typhoon Mangkhut — the strongest this year — made landfall early on Saturday, according to officials in the Philippines.
Fierce winds and heavy rains ripped off rooftops, toppled trees and lampposts, and cut power to more than 4 million people across Cagayan province on Luzon island, some 300 kilometers (186 miles) north of Manila, local media reported.
Mangkhut battered the area with maximum winds of 205 kilometers per hour (127 miles per hour) and gusts of up to 285 kilometers per hour.
