Search for landslide victims as Philippines typhoon toll rises

World Dream arrived Monday at Hong Kong's Kai Tak Cruise Terminal where nothing was amiss

Hong Kong began a massive clean-up Monday after the typhoon raked the city, shredding trees and bringing damaging floods in a trail of destruction.

While the damage was still being assessed on Tuesday, a yacht club manager said "long negotiations on insurance claims" would come next for boat owners. It also said more than 13,300 hectares of farmland had been damaged.

A villager officer who accompanied Zambale used a megaphone to warn people that Mangkhut was extraordinarily powerful and everybody should leave, he said.

Hong Kong recently faced the devastating effect of the super typhoon that swirled past the city on Sunday moving towards the sea coast of China while gaining enormous strength while moving via South China Sea.

The Philippines has a poor record of regulating mining, with tunnel collapses and landslides in recent years regularly killing people in other gold-rush areas.

Officials in The Philippines say it is unlikely that any of the dozens of people thought to be buried in a huge landslide set off by Typhoon Mangkhut will be found alive.

China Central Television, the state broadcaster, said four people had been killed in Guangdong, China's most populous province of over 100 million residents.

A video posted online by residents showed the top corner of an old building break and fall off, while in another video, a tall building swayed as strong winds blew.

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

The Hong Kong Government made the call to lower the storm signal early Monday morning to allow the stock market to open for trading, meaning that Hong Kongers were also expected to go to work.

As of 18 September, 236,133 people are displaced, of whom 162,472 are staying in evacuation centres while 73,661 are staying outside evacuation centres (DSWD 18/09/2018). Meanwhile, Japanese Ambassador to the Philippines Koji Haneda on Monday offered his sincerest condolences to the families of the victims of Typhoon Ompong and expressed his sympathies to all those affected.

Cagayan Valley, the country's top corn producer and second rice producer, is the region hardest hit by the typhoon which struck just before the harvest season.

The national meteorological center said southern China "will face a severe test caused by wind and rain" and urged officials to prepare for possible disasters.

Stock and financial markets opened as normal on Monday in Hong Kong and the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen.
