Dozens More Feared Dead In The Philippines After Typhoon Triggers Mudslide

Philippines halts risky mining in mountains hit by typhoon

Mangkhut was expected to make landfall sometime Sunday evening in southern mainland China.

To be fair, the government deserves credit for having taken substantial precautionary measures such as holding an interdepartmental press conference to alert the public, which was rather rare, as well as evacuating people from coastal and low-lying areas such as Lei Yue Mun and Tai O before Mangkhut arrived.

Many of those who sought cover in the two-story building thought it was sturdy, but the storm was just too severe, with the avalanche covering it "in just a few seconds", Ullani said.

Dozens of people sought shelter there during the storm despite warnings it was unsafe.

"They laughed at our policemen. We are unaware how deep they were buried", said Peter Negrido, who has been involved in numerous rescue missions during natural disasters.

"In times like this, miners from all over the region pitch in", provincial police chief Lyndon Mencio, told AFP, adding they are an asset because of expertise at tunnelling.

Hundreds of rescuers, including police and soldiers were still scrambling Monday to search for the missing.

"We will not stop until we recover all the bodies", Palangdan said.

China raises tariffs on $60b of US goods in technology trade fight
China had already gone blow for blow with the United States on tariffs on more than $ 50 billion of each other's goods this year. The lower Chinese figure highlights Beijing's inability to match the United States dollar-for-dollar in a tariffs war.

But Tuesday was already the fourth day after the slide and while officials spoke of a possible miracle, the miners were more sombre.

The highest number of casualties was reported from the mining town of Itogon in Benguet province.

As of Monday morning Mangkhut was on track to pass over the Guangxi regional capital of Nanning and move toward the border with tourism powerhouse Yunnan province. There were no additional reports of deaths or damage.

The mighty winds broke glasses of commercial buildings, brought down materials from under-construction buildings, uprooted trees and blocked roads. Bus, rail and ferry services there were cancelled, as were more than 900 flights at its busy airport.

In Hong Kong, crews were clearing fallen trees and other wreckage left when the financial hub felt the full brunt of the storm on Sunday.

The Hong Kong Observatory reported Mangkhut was the most powerful cyclone to hit the city since 1979, packing maximum sustained gusts of 121 miles per hour.

Federal emergency official Brock Long said: 'Not only are you going to see more impact across North Carolina, but we're anticipating a lot of damage going through West Virginia, all the way up to OH as the system exits'.
