MANILA » A powerful typhoon is blowing away from the northern Philippines after leaving at least four people dead despite not making landfall.

Office of Civil Defense chief Benito Ramos says slow-moving Typhoon Muifa was packing sustained winds of 108 miles per hour and gusts of 130 mph as it blew away from northern Luzon Island's eastern coast Monday toward southern Taiwan and Japan.

Ramos says two fish-pond workers drowned when their boat overturned north of Manila and two children 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.
