Thousands fleeing typhoon in the Philippines

Thousands fleeing typhoon in the Philippines
The authorities in the country has warned that the typhoon could lead to both tsunami-like flooding and landslides.

The storm has abated slightly in strength, but it is still expected that it will hit the main island of Luzon Sunday afternoon or evening, with gusts up to 205 km/h.

Thousands of people have already been evacuated from areas expected to be hit by the typhoon.

- There are areas that can get landslides, and there are areas that can get flooded. Coastal areas could be hit by waves as high as a meter and a half, says Mina Marasigan, spokeswoman for the national crisis management.

In the Philippines flooding is increasingly a concern during storms of the kind expected on Sunday.

In 2013 such tsunami-like waves were among the biggest reasons that over 7,300 people were killed or went missing when the typhoon Haiyan devastated the country.

Several marinas are closed, and some domestic flights are canceled due to the typhoon alert.

About 20 typhoons and storms, many of them deadly, hits the Philippines every year.
