The storm, referred to as Dodong in the Philippines, hit land Sunday afternoon at the northeastern tip of the island of Luzon, near the small town of Santa Ana, according to PAGASA, the Philippine government agency that monitors the weather.

Noul’s outer bands had lashed Luzon’s eastern coast through the afternoon as it drew nearer, packing maximum sustained winds of about 260 kph (160 mph) and gusts as strong as 315 kph (195 mph).

“The wind and the rain are just steadily building up and they have been for the last couple of hours,” said storm chaser James Reynolds from Santa Ana as the storm approached.

Authorities said they relocated more than 1,200 residents of vulnerable areas to evacuation centers ahead of the typhoon’s arrival arrival.

Storm warnings across a wide area

PAGASA had issued its highest storm warning for the northeastern part of Cagayan province and islands off its coast, as well as lower level warnings for the wider region. It said the super typhoon could bring flash floods and landslides.

In Santa Ana, a town of about 30,000 people, fishermen brought in their boats earlier in the day, and businesses boarded up their windows, Reynolds told CNN.

“People here are taking it very seriously,” he said.

Over roughly two days, Noul could dump as much as half a meter (20 inches) of rain on some areas, almost the same amount that London gets in a year, said meteorologist Pedram Javaheri.

The affected region is far more sparsely populated than urban areas farther south.

The rough seas caused by the storm prompted many ships to take shelter in ports, leaving more than 5,000 people stranded across the nation, according to the national disaster management agency.

Farmers wanted rain

While Noul has been menacing the northeastern Philippines, Mount Bulusan has been spewing ash in southern Luzon.
