At least 31 dead after Typhoon Rai slams the Philippines

At least 31 people are dead in the Philippines after Typhoon Rai slammed the southeastern coast Thursday, with sustained winds of up to 121 miles an hour.  

It was one of the most powerful typhoons in recent years. More than 300,000 people were evacuated to safety in advance of the storm’s arrival.  

Many are now left homeless in the Dinagat Islands, one of the first provinces to be lashed by the typhoon.  The governor of the Dinagat islands says it has been “leveled to the ground.”
