Typhoon Bopha hits Philippines killing 4 people
At least four people were killed in typhoon Bopha, the strongest tropical storm to hit the Philippines this year. The storm slammed into a southern island, destroying homes, cutting power and forcing the cancellation of flights and ferry services.
Bopha, with wind gusts of up to 195 kph (121 mph), made landfall at dawn, uprooting trees, tearing off roofs, and disrupting power and communication lines.
