Cebu Pacific airways planes park at the tarmac at Ninoy Aquino International airport in Pasay city, metro Manila November 8, 2013, after nearly 200 local flights have been suspended due to Typhoon Haiyan that hit central Philippines on Friday. Typhoon Haiyan, the strongest storm on earth this year, slammed into the Philippines' central islands on Friday forcing millions of people to move to safer ground and storm shelters, cutting power and phone lines, and grounding air and sea transport. The maximum category-five super typhoon, with destructive winds gusting of up to 275 kph (170 mph), whipped up giant waves as high as 4-5 meters (12-15 feet) that lashed the islands of Leyte and Samar, and was on track to hit holiday destinations REUTERS/Romeo Ranoco (PHILIPPINES - Tags: TRANSPORT ENVIRONMENT) less
