Thousands evacuated before typhoon NOUL hits Philippines

Thousands of people on the northeast coast of Luzon are being evacuated as typhoon NOUL is expected on Sunday. Tsunami-like waves up to 2.5 meters are forecast. In addition, people are also being evacuated near the active volcano Mount Bulusan since heavy rains may cause major ash and mud slides. Thousands of passengers have already been stranded in seaports along the central and eastern Philippines after authorities shut down ferry services because of rough seas.
