Supertyphoon heads for Philippines

MANILA 29 November – The Philippine Coast Guard has today suspended local shipping operations in the Bicol region as typhoon Durian intensified into a "supertyphoon", (locally named Reming). The suspension resulted in the stranding of hundreds of passengers at Tabaco and Matnog ports and Calapan terminal in Mindoro. Official sources said more than 3,000 people have been stranded and hundreds of vehicles were kept on board as a result of the sailing suspension. A quay in Dingalan, Quezon, one of the provinces near Bicol directly hit by Durian, is said to have been ravaged yesterday because of strong waves slamming directly into the municipal port. PCG has barred ships of 1,000gt from sailing to prevent any more disasters. The weather bureau said Durian, with backing winds of 195km per hour and gusts of up to 225kph, is expected to hit Metro Manila tonight or on Friday morning. A spokesman from a disaster co-ordinating council said the body has activated emergency operations centres and instructed other agencies to be on alert. Durian is the third super typhoon and the 18th storm to hit the Philippines this year
