Millions of people in Manila hunkered down on Monday as Typhoon Hagupit churned towards the capital, after claiming at least 23 lives while ripping apart homes in remote island communities. Soldiers and aid workers rushed to reach devastated coastal villages on Samar island, where the typhoon crashed in from the Pacific Ocean during the weekend with winds reaching 130 mile an hour.
