Residents flee their flooded homes in Manila, Philippines, on Saturday.

Typhoon Sanba was lashing southwest Okinawa Island on Sunday after earlier contributing to monsoon rains that flooded parts of Manila in the Philippines.

The storm was moving towards South Korea, where it was expected to make landfall by Monday.

In Manila, some 300 families had to evacuate as some streets were under as much as 6 feet of water.

Japan's Okinawa Island saw heavy rain and winds of 60 mph as Sanba swept past. 

No reports of damage were immediately available.
