(AP) Super Typhoon Megi dumped heavy rains over the Philippine capital Tuesday after killing 10 people, creating a wasteland of fallen trees in the north and sending thousands scrambling to safety in near-zero visibility.
"As it moved away from the Philippines, the strongest cyclone in years regained strength over the South China
Sea on Tuesday while heading toward China and Vietnam
, where recent floods unrelated to the storm already have caused 30 deaths.
"Surging currents on Vietnam's flooded main highway Monday swept away a bus and 20 of its passengers, including a boy pulled from his mother's grasp. In China, authorities evacuated 140,000 people from a coastal province ahead of the typhoon, which Chinese officials said could hit the southern coast Thursday. Heavy rains have already lashed Hainan."
