Typhoon Vongfong knocks down trees, wreaks havocs in Philippines


Mandaluyong City, May 16 (EFE/EPA).- Vongfong, the first typhoon of the season, knocked down trees, tore off roofs and sent Debris flying in several islands of the central Philippines. According to weather reports, Typhoon Vongfong on Saturday has weakened as it continues to travel over northern Luzon, Philippines. Strong winds and rain from Typhoon Vongfong killed at least one person and damaged hundreds of homes on Friday. The typhoon, locally dubbed Ambo, entered the Philippines on Thursday through the town of San Policarpio on Samar Island, where some 400,000 people live in low-lying, coastal areas that are especially vulnerable to the passage of the storm, whose strength is equivalent to that of a Category 4 hurricane.Vongfong is moving at a speed of 19 kph as it heads towards the northern Philippines, which it is expected to leave Tuesday morning for Japan.The Philippines is hit by between 15 and 20 typhoons each year during the rainy season, which usually begins in May or June and ends in November or December.In November 2013, Haiyan, one of the most powerful typhoons ever to hit the Philippines - with winds up to 315 km per hour - caused 6,300 deaths, with more than 1,000 people missing and 14 million affected.
