Typhoon Mangkhut kills 4, causes flooding, landslides in China

Philippines' paddy rice losses from Typhoon Ompong exceed forecasts by 60%

Tropical cyclone Mangkhut advanced west through southern China's Guangdong province after making landfall on Sunday, forcing more than 2.4 million people to evacuate.

At that time, the center of the depression was around 200 kilometers (124 miles) from the Vietnam-China border with wind speeds of up to 60 kilometers per hour.

National police spokesman senior superintendent Benigno Durana said 43 other people are missing, and more than 155,000 people remain in evacuation centres two days after the typhoon struck.

Both Vietnamese and global weather stations have predicted that the storm turned depression will directly affect the northern and northern central regions.

Storm surges raised sea levels as much as four meters higher than usual in Tsim Sha Tsui, the South China Morning Post reported.

Mangkhut is already the storm of 2018, and is now packing sustained winds of 165 km, with gusts up to 205 km per hour.

"They thought they were really safe there", the mayor said Sunday.

Hong Kong is making great efforts Monday to clear roads and fix facilities so as to restore normal order, after typhoon Mangkhut left almost 400 injured in China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Sunday.

Life is gradually returning to normal along the hard-hit southern Chinese coast, where high-rises swayed, coastal hotels flooded and windows were blown out as a result of Typhoon Mangkhut.

After tearing through Luzon and pummelling Hong Kong and Macau, the storm made landfall in mainland China late Sunday, with two reported dead in Guangdong province. Dozens of residents sought shelter there during the storm on Saturday, despite warnings it was risky.

In Hong Kong residents bus, ferry and rail services were suspended and nearly 900 flights were canceled at the city's airport, one of the world's busiest.

Trains are providing limited service due to overhead line damage caused by fallen trees along the East Rail Line.

Mangkhut destroyed rice and corn crops worth an estimated $177 million and damaged 450 homes, with flooding in nine provinces, official estimates showed.

Rescuers search for people trapped in a landslide caused by Typhoon Mangkhut at a small-scale mining camp in Itogon, Benguet, in the Philippines, September 17, 2018.

"What can we do?" he said. "The Hong Kong Observatory said the intensity of the storm, which required a typhoon signal No 10 to stay in place for 10 hours, was the most powerful since records began in 1946". About 63,000 people have been affected, and the damage has not yet been fully assessed as numerous worst-hit areas are rural.

About 400 people there have been rescued from flood waters, and most of the city remains without power.

"We already declared the area as "not livable" even before the incident", Palangdan said, adding: "We do not allow anybody to construct houses there". In anticipation for the storm, the most powerful to hit the Chinese semi-autonomous enclaves in decades, Macau authorities shuttered the gambling hub's 42 casinos for the first time.

A resident of Taishan, in the eastern part of the province, said they had no power or water on Monday.
