Thousands of people fled their homes and ships sheltered from heavy seas in the Philippines today as the first major storm of the rainy season strengthened into a typhoon.

Typhoon Rammasun was set to strike the Bicol region in the east of the country, with Manila and other heavily populated areas also expected to be hit early tomorrow.

In November last year, Super Typhoon Haiyan brought the strongest winds ever recorded on land to the central Philippines, killing up to 7,300 people in one of the nation's worst ever natural disasters.

Rammasun will be the first to make landfall since this year's rainy season began in June.
