At least 270 are dead following Typhoon Bopha's landfall in the Phillipines Tuesday. According to the Telegraph, the storm has also destroyed homes and brought down power lines.
Mindanao island was especially affected, with flash floods and landslides slamming a mining base and sweeping water and soil through an army post, according to Reuters. A television reporter said she saw numerous dead bodies lined up near the base.
The Associated Press also reported that a Philippines governor said at least 43 villagers and soldiers had drowned when the typhoon dumped a torrent of water that rushed down a mountainside.
