A powerful typhoon hits the Philippines, killing several people


Residents of Manila waded through deep floodwater and dodged flying debris on Wednesday as a powerful typhoon hit the Philippines, killing at least 19 people and sending waves as tall as palm trees crashing over seawalls.

Most deaths in Metro Manila, which was already heavy monsoon rains before the arrival of Typhoon Nesat soaked with rain and wind gusts of up to 93 mph (150 km) occurred.

Downtown along Manila Bay suffered its worst flooding in decades. The rain obscured the view of someone climbing on the street as soldiers and police to evacuate thousands of people in low lying areas where rivers and the sea in huts, hospitals, hotels and even the seaside chic U. S. Embassy compound reversed.
