At least two people have been killed and another four reported missing as Typhoon Nesat forced the closure of the Philippine Stock Exchange
The Philippines has been struck by a powerful typhoon causing floods and power cuts in the capital Manila.
Many roads are out of use, flights have been cancelled and authorities have ordered people to seek shelter from heavy rains and wind gusts of up to 106 miles (170 kilometres) per hour.
At least two people have been killed and another four reported missing as Typhoon Nesat forced the closure of the Philippine Stock Exchange, the US embassy in Manila and the evacuation of more than 100,000 people in the central Albay province. The typhoon is expected to continue across the country, before blowing across the South China Sea towards southern China on Thursday.
Due to the recent Typhoon, please note that cut off time for cover under our travel insurance policies is Tuesday 27th September 2011 at 09:00 GMT therefore policyholders whose policy was purchased after this date will not be covered under the policy for Travel Delay, Abandonment, or Missed Departure as a direct or indirect result of the Typhoon.
Please note that the airlines should make themselves responsible for offering clients alternate flights / compensation for additional accommodation and so these elements would not be covered under the policy.
