Typhoon Goni Slams Into Philippines Sunday


What Happened:

  • Typhoon Goni hit the Philippines on Sunday with sustained winds of 140 MPH and gusts of 174 MPH, the equivalent of a category 5 hurricane.

  • Goni has resulted in at least 7 deaths and caused major flooding and volcanic mudflows to bury houses.

  • The typhoon comes on the heels of another typhoon that hit one week ago and left 22 dead.

  • The government warned that this typhoon was capable of causing major damage and that people would experience "catastrophic, violent winds and intense...torrential rainfall."

  • Goni has weakened since making landfall but still remains dangerous with sustained winds of 102 MPH and gusts of up to 143 MPH.
