Slow-moving typhoon dumping significant amounts of precipitation on northern Philippines

Typhoon KOPPU [locally named “LANDO”] made landfall on the island of Luzon Sunday morning, packing winds of about 200 km/h (124mph).

About a dozen people are dead, or reported missing in storm-related incidents.

The massive system continues to dump significant amounts of precipitation, triggering floods and landslides, destroying homes, toppling trees and power lines.

More than 16,000 people were forced to abandon their homes, as of posting, with more evacuations expected in the next few days, as the slow-moving system continues to batter the region.

KOPPU is forecast to exit the Philippines Tuesday, heading toward Taiwan.
