Typhoon Goni in the Philippines

Super Typhoon Goni hit the eastern coast of Luzon Island in the Philippines. Over a million inhabitants were evacuated. The strongest tropical storm in 7 years has passed over an island country in the Pacific. The wind was blowing at a speed of 225 km / h, with gusts reaching 310 km / h. Many houses were damaged and roads were flooded.

Super Typhoon is not only a wind blowing with great force. It is also heavy rainfall, which can also lead to disastrous consequences. Super Typhoon Goni is the force equivalent of a Category 5 Atlantic Hurricane. Goni was relegated to a typhoon on Sunday, and sustained wind speeds have decreased.

Super Typhoon Goni is the strongest storm that has haunted the Philippines since the Haiyan typhoon, which in 2013 claimed over 6.3 thousand deaths.
