Strong typhoon threatens north Philippines, Japan

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Philippine officials say a strong typhoon is blowing over the Pacific Ocean in the country's northeast and may induce heavy rains, but is too far off to hit land.

Government weather forecaster Glaiza Escullar said Typhoon Neoguri was blowing with sustained winds of 185 kilometers (115 miles) per hour and gusts of 220 kph (136 mph) Sunday about 840 kilometers (522 miles) off Cagayan province.

Escullar said the storm was expected to blow northwest and will be about 500 kilometers (310 miles) northeast of Batanes Province in the country's northern tip Monday. It will then likely blow toward southern Japan.

Alexander Pama, who heads the Philippines' disaster-response agency, advised fishing boats and small vessels not to venture off the eastern coast and urged flood-prone villages to closely monitor weather reports.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
