The Philippines is preparing for a typhoon that is forecast to dump heavy rain and cause severe flooding when it arrives at the weekend.

President Benigno Aquino warned people living in the path of Typhoon Koppu to be ready to evacuate.

In a TV address, he said the storm could bring up to 12 hours' torrential rain and cause severe flooding.

It was Aquino's first such appeal since Typhoon Haiyan struck in 2013, leaving more than 6,000 people dead.
