4 dead as Super Typhoon Mangkhut slams south China

Fire rescuers head to low-lying areas in Manila under heavy rains and strong winds brought about by Typhoon Mangkhut

The storm had maximum sustained gusts of 195 km/h in the city.

One resident staying with colleagues in a harbourside hotel told AFP they hid in the bathroom to keep safe as windows smashed in their rooms and winds swept away their belongings.

Nearly all flights in and out of Hong Kong were cancelled.

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.

On China's southern coast, more than two million people had been evacuated by authorities in Guangdong before the storm made landfall. However, there were no reported deaths in Hong Kong, a city well prepared for tropical cyclones.

Several parts of the Philippines have taken a hit from the destructive winds and heavy rains caused by Ompong.

Department of Environment and Natural Resources secretary Roy Cimatu told the press conference, which was livestreamed on Facebook, that mining in the area had been banned, effective immediately. Dozens of people rushed into a three-storey building that was later destroyed by a landslide.

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. He expressed sadness that the villagers, many of them poor, had few options to survive in a region where big corporations have profited immensely from gold mines.

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