The typhoon has also ripped through Hong Kong, injuring more than 200 people.

Of the four fatalities in Guangdong, three died after they were hit by falling trees in Guangzhou while another was killed when a building collapsed in Dongguan.

Mangkhut is expected to weaken into a tropical depression by Tuesday as it moves inland.

Rescue efforts continued Sunday in the Philippines, which weathered the brunt of Mangkhut's strength the day before.

Centaline Property Agency Ltd. and Midland Realty scored zero transactions this weekend in the city's existing home market due to the storm and strong supply in primary market, Radio Television Hong Kong reported.

Authorities also were checking what happened to about 70 men who reportedly returned to their coastal village to check on their homes during the typhoon onslaught. As in Hong Kong, they had stockpiled water and basic foods Saturday and Sunday, emptying stores.

Rescue workers said previously that up to 50 people, including children, were believed trapped in the wreckage.

With damaged roads preventing the entry of heavy equipment, soldiers, police and miners also used shovels and channeled water from a nearby stream to loosen the earth.
