MANILA, Philippines - One of world's strongest storms ever recorded has slammed into the central Philippines, killing at least four people.

Typhoon Haiyan generated landslides, knocked out power and communication lines in several provinces, and forced hundreds of thousands of people from their homes.

Meteorologist Mike Favetta says wind gusts reached up to 225 mph, but the storm is now diminishing as it moves westward, dumping rain over China.
