A man walks on a breakwater of Manila Bay in strong wind from Typhoon Koppu in Navotas, Philippines, on Sunday October 18. Koppu is forecast to lumber over the country's main island of Luzon at an excruciatingly slow pace and dump huge amounts of rain on the rugged terrain, setting off floods and landslides.
