MANILA -- Typhoon Yolanda has claimed two lives Friday after a man was reported electrocuted to death in Surigao Del Norte while another was crushed after being hit by a falling tree in Cebu.

Major Rey Balido, National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council spokesperson, said no other details were available on the circumstances in the Surigao Del Norte incident.

In Medellin town, Cebu, the victim, also male, was hit and killed by a tree toppled by strong winds caused by Yolanda.

As this develops, two Mandaue-Mactan bridges are now closed to vehicles due to the powerful winds.

Earlier, the Cebu provincial government said powerful winds from Yolanda tore off roofs and uprooted trees in Cebu province.

A tornado also damaged at least 50 houses in Bohol province.

Cebu and Bohol are among the areas hardest hit by a magnitude-7.2 quake in Central Visayas last October 15.

Three dead as super typhoon Yolanda pounds central Philippines

November 8, 2013
 
One of the most intense typhoons on record whipped the Philippines Friday, killing three people and terrifying millions as monster winds tore roofs off buildings and giant waves washed away flimsy homes.

Super Typhoon Haiyan smashed into coastal communities on the central island of Samar, about 600 kilometers southeast of Manila, before dawn on Friday with maximum sustained winds of about 315 kilometers an hour.

"We've had reports of uprooted trees, very strong winds... and houses made of light materials being damaged," Philippine Red Cross chief Gwendolyn Pang told AFP on Friday afternoon as Haiyan swept across the archipelago's central and southern islands.

Agence France-Presse, meanwhile, said a man was reported missing after he fell off a gangplank in the central port of Cebu.
 
"The winds were so strong that they flattened all the banana plants around the house," university student Jessa Aljibe, 19, told AFP by telephone from the Samar city of Borongan shortly after Haiyan made landfall.
 
All telephone contact to the island was later lost as the typhoon moved inland.
