And it's left carnage in its wake. More than two dozen dead in the Philippines, mostly in landslides. Among the victims are a baby and a toddler, authorities said, while others remain missing. On Sunday, Mangkhut skirted around 60 miles south of Hong Kong, where the highest number ten typhoon signal was raised.
Ferocious winds battered the city, uprooting trees and smashing windows, shaking high-rise buildings, and flooding roads. It made landfall on China's southern Guangdong Province later on Sunday, after barreling past the gaming center of Macau. There, casino gambling has been halted, and China's People's Liberation Army is on standby for disaster relief.
