Super Typhoon Goni killed at least four people as it triggered flash flooding and power outages after twice making landfall in the southern region of the Philippines' main island of Luzon before weakening Sunday, per Reuters.

The big picture: Asia's most powerful typhoon of 2020, also known as Typhoon Rolly, caused nearly 1 million people to evacuate, the BBC reports. The Philippine weather bureau warned the storm remained a risk, with "catastrophic violent winds" and "intense to torrential rainfall" expected ahead of it moving south of Manila and out to the South China Sea by Sunday afternoon.

The big picture: Eta, which made landfall in Nicaragua as a Category 4 hurricane on Tuesday, was expected to strengthen overnight as it moved northeast toward Cuba, the Cayman Islands, parts of the Bahamas and southern Florida, the National Hurricane Center said late on Friday.

Why it matters: Both the Trump and Biden administrations, as well as several foreign parliaments, have recognized China's repression of Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities in Xinjiang as genocide.
