2nd typhoon in the Philippines

10:07 am on 2 October 2011

Another typhoon has hit the Philippines. Warnings of flash floods and landslides were issued as Typhoon Nalgae hit regions still waterlogged by an earlier storm.

Nalgae made landfall in the eastern province of Isabela on Saturday, with winds of up to 195km per hr, taking much the same route as Typhoon Nesat on Tuesday.

The BBC reports it was heading west toward the South China Sea.

Heavy wind and rain is expected in the Philippines for a further 48 hours.

The Philippines has frequent typhoons, about 20 per year.
