MANILA, PHILIPPINES (AP)  The world's strongest typhoon of the year has slammed into the Philippines.

One weather expert says Typhoon Haiyan was set to be the strongest any tropical cyclone has ever been when it made landfall.

The U.S. Navy's Joint Typhoon Warning Center in Hawaii shortly before landfall said the storm's maximum sustained winds were 195 mph, with gusts up to 235 mph.

Thousands of people have evacuated villages in its path.
