Fourth typhoon in a month strikes Philippines
October 31, 2009
The Philippines was struck by Typhoon Mirinae, the fourth such storm in a month, bringing more severe rainfall and winds to the eastern coastal province of Quezon.
BBC online reported that “Mirinae, with winds of 150 km/h (93mph) and gusts of up to 186 km/h (115mph) made landfall on Quezon around midnight Friday, sweeping west, south of the capital and weakening into a tropical storm on Saturday afternoon.”
