Typhoon leaving Philippines.
Office of Civil Defense chief Benito Ramos says slow-moving Typhoon Muifa was packing sustained winds of 108 miles (175 kilometers) per hour and gusts of 130 mph (210 kph).
It is moving away from northern Luzon Island's eastern coast Monday toward southern Taiwan and Japan.
Ramos says two fishpond workers drowned when their boat overturned north of Manila. Two children also died in a landslide amid fierce rain and wind in a sand quarrying site in central Bohol province over the weekend.
Muifa roared toward the Philippines on Thursday as Tropical Storm Nock-ten was blowing out after leaving 57 people dead.
