Another typhoon threatens the Philippines

6:04 am on 21 October 2009

The Philippines has put several northern coastal areas on alert, and is preparing to evacuate thousands of people as another typhoon threatens the country.

Typhoon Lupit is expected to make landfall by Thursday.

People in the Philippines are still recovering from recent storms that left more than 850 people dead.

Forecasters say the incoming typhoon is expected to be much stronger than the last two storms.
