Typhoon Bopha can be seen shearing apart while approaching the northern Philippines.
Typhoon Bopha made a second pass over the Philippines, this time drenching northern Luzon Island before dissipating.

Strong wind shear aloft tore the storm apart as it approched northern Luzon Island on Saturday night.

The death toll from its rampage across Mindanao rose to 930 with 890 people remaining missing as of Friday.

Many made homeless were running out of food and relying on the kindness of passing motorists for assistance.

The Philippine government's handling of the storm's aftermath and warnings before its arrival are being harshly criticized.
