Philippines evacuates coastal areas ahead of typhoon Yutu

MANILA (Reuters) - The Philippines raised storm warning levels on Monday
and began evacuating some coastal communities in the path of a typhoon
that threatened storm surges, landslides and floods triggered by heavy
winds and rain.

Typhoon Yutu, which caused havoc last week with a direct hit on the U.S.
Northern Mariana islands, was set to make landfall on Tuesday morning
and move across the main island of Luzon before leaving the Philippines
24 hours later, the state weather agency PAGASA said.

By mid-morning on Monday, Yutu was about 400 km (249 miles)east of the
mainland and had weakened to sustained wind speeds of 150 km per hour
(93 mph), with gusts of 185 kph, from 170 kph recorded a few hours earlier.

That was less intense than four days ago, when as a super typhoon with
wind speeds of over 270 kph barreled through the Marianas, a U.S.
Western Pacific archipelago of 52,000 people, tearing off roofs,
overturning vehicles and cutting off power and water.

Authorities in Isabela and Cagayan provinces started moving residents in
coastal towns to evacuation centers while the mountainous Cordillera
region was put on red alert for landslides.

Super Typhoon Yutu, the most powerful tropical cyclone on Earth in 2018,
strikes the Northern Mariana Islands
Full story:

Super Typhoon Yutu made landfall across Tinian and Saipan on Wednesday,
dealing a catastrophic blow of damaging winds and torrential rainfall to
both islands.

Yutu quickly strengthened from a tropical depression on Sunday into a
super typhoon by Wednesday as it became the strongest tropical cyclone
so far this year.

Yutu was the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane in the Atlantic or
east Pacific basins at the time of landfall on Tinian, with maximum
sustained winds of 290 km/h (180 mph).
