MANILA, Philippines (AP) -- Typhoon Nesat, packing winds of up to 100 mph, made landfall before dawn Tuesday in northeastern Luzon, the Philippines’ largest island, leaving a trail of flooding and devastation in its wake. The violent storm later lost strength and moved out to sea, heading toward southern China.
