Manila: A ty­phoon lashed the south­ern part of the Philip­pines’ main Lu­zon is­land overnight Sun­day, dump­ing heavy rains, top­pling power lines and leav­ing at least 13 miss­ing, disas­ter of­fi­cials said.

Ty­phoon Molave, pack­ing 125kmh wind speeds and gusts of up to 150kmh, forced tens of thou­sands of peo­ple to evac­u­ate.

There was no im­me­di­ate re­port of ca­su­al­ties, but 12 fish­er­men and a sailor were still miss­ing last night. — Reuters
