The Philippines is bracing for a typhoon heading for the north of the main island of Luzon, the same region badly damaged by a deadly storm just weeks earlier.

As of Monday, Typhoon Yutu was a category 3 storm set to hit the Philippines Tuesday morning with sustained winds of 106 miles per hour and gusts up to 130 miles per hour, Reuters reports.

Yutu, locally named Rosita, is the 18th typhoon to hit the Philippines this year. It destroyed crops worth more than 9.65 billion pesos (S$250 million).

The Philippines raised tropical cyclone warnings levels for nine provinces and put a mountainous region on high alert for possible landslides on Monday ahead of a typhoon that threatened storm surges and floods triggered by heavy winds and rain. Thousands of people in some mountain, coastal and river areas moved to temporary shelters on Monday after warnings were issued for landslides and waves of up to 3 metres (9.8 feet).

Airlines cancelled at least a dozen flights between Manila and northern Luzon.

As stated by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration, Typhoon Yutu crashed into Isabela at around 4 a.m., with maximum nonstop winds of 150 kmph and gusts of up to 210 kmph.
