Super typhoon hits wedding in the Philippines58s

Super typhoon hits wedding in the Philippines

This is the dramatic moment a couple's wedding turns from joy to terror in a second - after the ceremony is hit by a typhoon. Randy Manaois, 29, and bride Jennifer, 28, are seen walking arm in arm as she prepares to throw the bouquet at the reception. Footage shows them with beaming smiles passing a row of clapping bridesmaid, pop music playing in the background. But as they reach the top of the dancefloor, a look of concern spreads across their faces as a large crack erupts overhead. Seconds later a deafening rumble of thunder sounds as windows shatter, plunging the room into darkness as the electricity cuts out. Guests run for cover, screaming as the deadly storm currently wreaking havoc across the country hits the venue, smashing windows and tearing down power cables outside. Randy said: ''It happened so fast. Everyone was excited and things were moving quickly. Then we heard the sound and there was a flash in the mirrors. There was a big crash above the roof and everything was blacking out. My wife was scared and everyone was panicking. I am thankful that everyone was safe, but we are sorry to all our guests. We did not know that such a tragedy will happen. My wife is still in shock.'' The wedding took place on Friday - a day before Typhoon Ompong, also named Mangkhut, made landfall in the north on Luzon Island in the north of the country. The central region of Metro Manila was experiencing the effects of the approaching super typhoon which has killed dozens of people with its 200mph winds.

Thai authorities' rescue of monitor lizard appears heavy-handed

Questions have been raised after a video showed Thai authorities hurling a monitor lizard over a wall after it wandered onto a busy motorway. The reptile was seen on the highway in the Din Daneg area of Bangkok, Thailand, last Friday. Rescue workers arrived and snared the animal with a lasso before lifting it in the air and throwing it unceremoniously over the edge of the raised road into bushes. The treatment of the animal in the video appears overly rough but authorities said the animal was completely unharmed and had been saved from certain death. Volunteer animal handler Khun Nakorn said: ''There were a lot of cars and the lizard could have caused an accident. It had to be dealt with quickly. We had to get it off the road. It wasn't injured.''

India's dancing traffic cop has got some moves

Pratap Chandra Khadwal has become a local celebrity in the town of Bhubaneswar in the Indian state of Odisha, although most people know him only as "The Dancing Traffic Cop." In his four years working with the traffic police, Pratap has developed a distinctive style of directing traffic at one of the city's busiest junctions. He bobs and weaves amid the rush hour madness, combining dance moves, whistles and other gestures to keep traffic flowing smoothly. Despite earning only 9,000 Indian Rupees a month (about 4 US dollars per day) working for the Home Guard, Pratap's obvious enthusiasm for the job has made him a much-loved local character.

Two rare Amur leopards born in Scotland's Highland Wildlife Park44s

Two rare Amur leopards born in Scotland's Highland Wildlife Park

Two of the rarest cats in the world have been born at the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland’s Highland Wildlife Park, increasing options for the first-ever reintroduction of the Amur leopard to the wild. The charity announced in July that its Amur leopard Arina had given birth. However, with human presence being kept to a minimum, the number of cubs born was unknown. Motion sensitive cameras have now shown that two cubs have emerged from their den deep within undergrowth, at least one of which may be released into the wild in Russia in the future. Douglas Richardson, head of living collections at the park, at Kincraig, near Kingussie, said, “We are delighted that Arina has two cubs, with both appearing to be strong and healthy. “Our Amur leopard habitat is the only one within the zoo community which has been designed to breed these extremely rare cats with the aim of producing cubs that are eligible for reintroduction to the wild." Funded by an anonymous donation, the park’s Amur leopard habitat is not on view to the public, which helps ensure the cubs retain their wild instincts and behaviour. Freddo, the father, came from Tallin Zoo in Estonia, while Arina was born at Twycross Zoo in the Midlands. Both leopards arrived at the park in 2016. Although progress has been made in recent years, habitat loss, poaching and conflict with humans remain threats to the Amur leopard, with only around 100 remaining in the wild.
