“Super Typhoon Goni Kills 10 in the Philippines”

“Super Typhoon Goni made landfall in the Philippines early Sunday, where it's brought deadly flooding and mudslides as well as destructive winds.

Goni had maximum sustained winds of 195 mph when it roared into the eastern Philippines. That made Goni the strongest tropical cyclone to make landfall anywhere on earth since 2013's Super Typhoon Haiyan, which also made landfall in the Philippines.

Goni is locally known as Rolly in the Philippines.

At least nine people were killed in the hard-hit province of Albay, including a father and son. Villagers fled to safety as the typhoon approached, but the two apparently stayed put in the community in Guinobatan town where about 150 houses were inundated by volcanic mudflow.”

The Weather Channel had the story November 1, 2020.
