After Typhoon Bopha leveled communities on the southern tip of the Philippines, killing nearly 500 people and leaving thousands homeless— it has re-strengthened and is forecasted to turn back around and hit the Philippines again. Here's CBC and the BBC.


“We’ve been tracking Typhoon Bopha and currently it looks like it might be making a turn back to the Philippines. Yea, this is where Bopha is right now, just off the short of the western island and it strengthening the South China Sea.”


“It is feared that Typhoon Bopha will bring 100 mile winds to the northern tip of the main island tonight. Officials say search and rescue efforts have been hampered after the typhoon left many villages completely destroyed.”


The Typhoon is expected to hit the northern tip of the main island, Luzon by Sunday. But forecasters say it is not unlikely that a storm would take this type of a windy path.


After Bopha’s first trip through the Philippines last Tuesday sustained more than 130 mile-per-hour winds and some 500 people are still missing. The Philippine President declared a state of national calamity on Saturday.
