Super Typhoon Koppu made landfall early Sunday in the Philippines, toppling trees, knocking out power and communications, and destroying homes.

Forecasters feared the storm could pound parts of the country with as much as 6 feet of rain and cause catastrophic flooding. There were no reports of casualties.

Typhoon Koppu, known as "Lando" in the Philippines, reached Casiguran in Luzon's Aurora province at 1 a.m. local time Sunday morning. There were reports of power outages and even before the storm hit, its outer bands drenched the country's east coast with heavy rains.
