Typhoon Kills Eight in Philippines

No, it's not Hurricane Irene. There's another storm causing perhaps as much damage. Typhoon Nanmadol reached the southern coast of Taiwan early Sunday, after killing at least eight people in the Philippines. Like Irene, Nanmadol is a slow-moving storm, and it is projected to head directly over Taiwan before turning toward mainland China. The typhoon triggered a landslide in northern Philippines on Saturday, killing at least two children. The death toll is expected to rise, as there are many missing, and officials have yet to assess the full impact of the storm.
