Typhoon "Haima" is moving to the Philippines
Super Typhoon "Haima" is moving to the Philippines with strong winds and heavy rainfall that can trigger landslides in the mountainous region in the North of Luzon island.

The storm turned into a super Typhoon on Tuesday local time, with winds up to 165 mph (270 kph) - making it a 5 category hurricane. This is the third strongest Typhoon this season, according to meteorologist Taylor ward.

"Since this storm is very strong, if he comes ashore in the Philippines, it will be very important. The area around the center will receive great damage from winds," said ward. The storm is on the way to strike Northern Luzon on Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

As many as 2.7 million people are expected to be affected by the Typhoon in seven Philippine provinces.
"Haima" and is expected to go Northwest and hit the Chinese coast by Friday evening. "Haima" is expected to be the second strong storm that threatens the Philippines this week.

At least 3 people were killed when Typhoon "Sarika" crossed the archipelago to the North of Manila as a category 4 storm on Sunday. Almost 10 thousand people were evacuated. On Tuesday, the storm had reached the southern Chinese island of Hainan, prompting the government to close schools in the island province and to suspend high-speed rail transport, according to the state news Agency Xinhua of China. About 500 thousand people were evacuated ahead of the storm, Xinhua reported.

"Sarika" has since become a weak tropical storm, but it flooded the island with 8-12 inches (200-300 mm) rainfall in the last 24 hours, which caused significant flooding, ward said.
Storm, as expected, brought the same amount of precipitation in the Northern part of Vietnam and southern China.
