Three people were killed after Typhoon Kammuri hit the western side of the Philippines on Tuesday.

Manila shut down its international airport due to the threat of flooding and landslides.

The storm continued to move westward away from land and into the West Philippines Sea, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration.

Forecasters reported that the storm had weakened, but was still very strong. They are now tracking it to the northwest of the country.

More than 500 flights were canceled on Tuesday.

Around 340,000 people were evacuated in the central Bicol region, Channel News Asia reported.

About 200,000 others were previously evacuated from coastal and mountainous areas in the country.
