Two People killed, several homes destroyed as Typhoon Kammuri hit the Philippines

Intro

At least two people were killed by Typhoon Kammuri in the Philippines on Tuesday as it tore roofs off houses and forced the international airport in Manila to shut down.

The storm roared ashore late Monday and passed south of Manila home to 13 million people and thousands of athletes at the regional Southeast Asian Games.

Just before it exited into the South China Sea, the typhoon killed two people in the central island of Mindoro, where one man was crushed by a falling tree and another killed by a flying piece of lumber, police said.

Ahead of the storm’s arrival a 33-year-old man was electrocuted on Monday while securing a roof against the winds, which by late Tuesday weakened to a maximum of 130 kilometres (81 miles) per hour.
