Philippines evacuates coasts, cancels sea trips

Philippine authorities started evacuating people from coastal areas on Sunday and hundreds were unable to travel by sea as the main island Luzon, including Manila, braces for a category 3 typhoon that continues to strengthen, Qazet.az reports according to officials.

Typhoon Noru became a supertyphoon "after a period of explosive intensification", with sustained winds increasing to 185 kph from 120 kph on Saturday evening, the disaster agency said in an advisory.
