Hong Kong puts city on highest alert as roofs are torn off and storm surges lay waste to waterfront

Typhoon Mangkhut killed dozens in the Philippines as it obliterated homes and crops and caused massive flooding, and is now on course to plough into China’s southern coast.

Presidential adviser Francis Tolentino said the heaviest casualty was recorded in the mountainous Cordillera region in northern Luzon, where heavy rains caused landslides that left 24 people dead and 13 more missing. Four others – including two children – were buried in a landslide in Nueva Ecija, another in Kalinga, and one person was killed by a falling tree in Ilocos Sur, Tolentino said.
