MANILA — The Philippines is bracing for a harrowing Halloween night as Typhoon Goni, the strongest storm in the world this year, is set to pass over its largest island.
In Naga City, over 200 miles east of Manila, Almira Miray Martinez and her family have used weights and rope to protect their galvanized metal roof. They covered their windows with material from rice sacks and tarpaulin to keep the rain out.

180 mph = 289.6 Km/h. !!!!
