Philippine miners dead in typhoon-triggered landslides

‘Super typhoon’ nears Hong Kong and China after pummeling Philippines

Officials estimate 200 people were injured in Hong Kong.

Typhoon Mangkhut yesterday barreled into southern China after lashing the northern Philippines with strong winds and heavy rain that left at least 64 people dead and dozens more feared buried in a landslide.

Most shops and public services have been closed. The South China Morning Post said Hong Kong's hospitals had to use backup power due to outages caused by the storm.

Philippine authorities said a baby and a toddler were among the 40 dead, a lot of them in landslides in mountainous areas that left at least 13 missing.

More than 155,000 people remain in evacuation centres in the Philippines two days after the typhoon struck, said national police spokesman Benigno Durana.

In Hong Kong, a video posted online by residents showed the top corner of an old building break and fall off while in another video, a tall building swayed as strong winds blew.

More than 3.11 million people had been relocated and over 49,000 fishing boats were called back to port in the province, state-run Xinhua news agency reported on Monday.

Secretary for Security John Lee Ka Chiu said at a briefing on Monday afternoon that the damage caused by Mangkhut was "serious and extensive".

Typhoon Mangkhut continued its deadly march across southern China Monday, steadily losing strength after a cutting a disastrous path across the northern Philippines.

One of those missed PATs would have put Cleveland ahead after Tyrod Taylor's remarkable touchdown pass on fourth down. Gordon has been suspended for most of the past four seasons because of multiple drug violations.

On Sunday, the storm made landfall in Guangdong province around 5pm local time (09:00 GMT), packing wind speeds of 162 km/h, while 10-metre-high waves battered the coastline. About 63,000 people have been affected, and the damage has not yet been fully assessed as numerous worst-hit areas are rural.

The Hainan provincial tourist department has ordered all scenic areas, schools and outdoor businesses to close on Sunday and Monday morning.

The victims had sought refuge in a church during the typhoon - but Lt Gen Salamat said they were told to flee the town.

In the Philippines, where the main island of Luzon was mauled with fierce winds and rain, the death toll rose to 65 overnight as rescuers pulled more bodies from a huge landslide in the mountain town of Itogon.

The storm skirted past China's semi-autonomous city of Hong Kong, where Mangkhut's renewed winds reached 117mph, rattling skyscrapers, toppling trees, and tearing scaffolding from construction sites.

Francis Tolentino, a political adviser to President Rodrigo Duterte, told the BBC that he estimated only a fifth of produce there had been harvested in advance - threatening staples like rice and corn.

Rail, airline and ferry services had been restored and casinos in the gambling enclave of Macau had reopened for business.

The typhoon, or "King of Storms", as Chinese media have described it, is expected to make landfall in Guangdong somewhere between Zhuhai and Wuchuan in the evening, Chinese weather officials say.
