Highlights
  • Typhoon Lawin (Haima) Makes Landfall in the Northern Philippines With 140 MPH Winds
  • Destructive winds, flooding rainfall and storm surge flooding will continue to pound the area

A report from The Weather Channel outlines...
Typhoon Haima has made landfall in the northern Philippines as a Category 4, making it the second typhoon of that intensity to strike the area in just a few days time. Late this week, Haima will make a second landfall in southeast China.

PAGASA - the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Service Administration - said that the center of Haima, known as "Lawin" in the Philippines, came ashore around 11:00 p.m. local time Wednesday near Baguio Point in the Cagayan Province. Maximum sustained winds were 140 mph at that time, according to an advisory issued by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center.

After topping out at Category 5 intensity late Tuesday-early Wednesday, Haima weakened some just before making landfall on northern Luzon Island. It remains a powerful and destructive typhoon, however.
The following videos are taken from the areas at the center of the typhoon.
