World's Strongest Typhoon of 2020 Makes Landfall in Philippines
By Kyodo News 2 November 2020
MANILA—Nearly a million people were evacuated from the eastern part of the Philippines’ main island of Luzon on Sunday as Goni, the world’s strongest typhoon of 2020, made landfall in the country.
Packing wind gusts of up to 310 km per hour when it first struck, decreasing to 295 kph in the afternoon, it is one of the strongest typhoons to hit the Philippines since Haiyan, which killed more than 6,300 people in November 2013.
