Manila warned as strong typhoon nears

The Philippines' main island, including the national capital Manila, is under a tropical cyclone warning for a typhoon forecast to hit on Monday night into Tuesday. Local governments have told thousands of people to evacuate vulnerable areas such as coastal communities. Nearly 70,000 people have already fled their homes in the Bicol region, which is where the typhoon was expected to make landfall. The worst conditions are forecast for provinces on Luzon, the most populous island in the archipelago. Philippine forecasters said Typhoon Kammuri had maximum sustained winds of 150 kilometers per hour near the center and gusts of up to 185 km/h at mid-afternoon on Monday.
