Typhoon Haiyan, the world's strongest storm of the year, has made landfall in the Philippines with winds of up to 235 km/h.
 

the national weather service said the category-five storm was centred 62 km south-east of Guiuan, in the country's Eastern Samar province.

 

Rescue services have reportedly lost contact with Guiuan, a town of 47,000.

 

Schools and offices have been closed in the region and thousands of people were evacuated amid fears of serious damage.

 

The storm is not expected to directly hit the capital Manila, further north.
