MANILA, Philippines (AP) -- Officials say at least four people have died as the strongest typhoon this year slammed into the Philippines today.

Close to 720,000 people had been evacuated from towns and villages in the typhoon's path across the central Philippines.

Among them were thousands of residents of Bohol living in makeshift shelters after a magnitude 7.2 earthquake hit the island province last month.
