Mangkhut is sweeping across southern China after pounding Hong Kong and leaving dozens dead in the Philippines. Officials said the damage in Hong Kong is "severe and extensive." Authorities are preparing for the worst.
Southern China braced for more heavy rains and winds on Monday, after a powerful typhoon already ravaged Hong Kong and left dozens dead from landslides in the Philippines.
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. The storm also brought transportation in the region to a halt.
