Typhoon Kammuri lashed the Philippines with aggressive winds and heavy rain, as hundreds of thousands were hiding out in shelters and the capital Manila prepared to shut down its international airport over safety concerns.

The powerful storm, which blew in windows and sheared off roofs, roared ashore and was due to pass south of Manila – home to some 13 million people.

Forecasters said Kammuri remained strong, with sustained winds of up to 155km/hr, and maximum gusts of 235 km/hr as it tracked northwest.

Over 3 lakh people had been evacuated from their homes in the central Bicol region.
