Waves Crash Against Homes in Hong Kong During Typhoon Mangkhut

Hong Kong's cruise calls back on track after Super Typhoon Mangkhut

The weather system was also the most powerful typhoon to hit Hong Kong since 1979, packing winds of 195 kilometres per hour.

The typhoon also left parts of Hong Kong and Macau severely flooded, though there were no immediate reports of fatalities.

The Philippine government has ordered a stop to all illegal mining in six mountainous northern provinces in a drastic decision to prevent more tragedies after Typhoon Mangkhut set off landslides that trapped dozens of poor people, including small-scale miners.

Bus services were halted and commuters piled onto platforms trying to board infrequent trains after trees fell on overhead power lines.

The storm is now making its way across mainland China after pummeling Hong Kong, forcing almost three million people to be moved to safety.

In the low-lying coastal village of Lei Yue Mun, famous for its seafood, residents young and old gingerly navigated rocks, glass, shells and branches.

The city s main Victoria Park became an obstacle course with hundreds of trees down and many completely uprooted. As the storm moved past the enclave Sunday, streets became submerged under water gushing in from the harbor.

Texas school superintendent says "can't count" on black QBs
Redden had posted the comment in reference to a play in which Watson held the ball as the final seconds ticked off the clock. He said he was referring to the statistical success of black National Football League quarterbacks.

"The water was flooding the footpaths and roads". People were attempting to dry out cupboards and electrical appliances on the streets as police and volunteers helped with the clear-up.

"I was insisting because the storm was strong but he told me not to worry because he said they're safe there", said a weeping Felipe, adding that her husband was last seen chatting with fellow miners in the chapel before it was hit by the collapsing mountainside.

President Tran Dai Quang and Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on September 18 extended their condolences to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte over the tragic loss caused by Typhoon Mangkhut in the country.

Typhoon Mangkhut prompted about 87,000 people to evacuate from high-risk areas of the Philippines over the weekend.

Episcopal Relief & Development is working with church partners in the Philippines and the region as they assess damage and prepare to respond to communities impacted by Typhoon Mangkhut. Meanwhile, the official death toll from the storm has risen 74. He said some of the families of the miners may have been buried in the 300-meter landslide, roughly the size of the Eiffel Tower.

Mayor Victorio Palangdan of Itogon town in Benguet province, among the worst-hit by the typhoon that struck on Saturday, said at a news conference that of the 40 to 50 people thought buried, there's a "99 per cent [chance] that they really are all dead".
