Typhoon Rai to hit central Philippines

December 15, 2021 - Typhoon Rai is expected to strike the Philippines on Thursday, bringing strong winds and rain to southern and central portions of the Southeast Asian archipelago.

The incoming typhoon has forced the Philippines to delay Covid-19 vaccinations of millions of people living in the path of the storm, as authorities hastened preparations in anticipation of its arrival. Thousands of people have been preemptively evacuated, Reuters said.
