Super Typhoon Megi hits Philippines (Photos and Video)
The strongest cyclone in years to buffet the Philippines knocked out communications and power as residents took shelter Monday, while flooding in Vietnam swept away a bus and 20 of its passengers, including a boy taken from his mother's grasp by the raging waters.
In China, authorities evacuated 140,000 people from a coastal province ahead of Super Typhoon Megi, (called "Juan" in the Philippines).
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said that Megi has weakened after crossing the Sierra Madre mountain range in northern Philippines.
