Fatal storm moves over south China


A powerful storm which killed dozens of people in the Philippines is now making its way across southern China, BBC says.

Two people have been killed in the Chinese province of Guangdong, while more than 2.5 million people have been evacuated in Guangdong and on Hainan island.

In Hong Kong, the storm wrecked buildings and shut down the city.

The typhoon is now moving inland, and is expected to hit the Chinese regions of Guizhou, Chongqing and Yunnan later in the day.

Transport services in Hong Kong have been suspended, with over 900 flights cancelled, trains stopped and major roads closed.

Mangkhut is expected to gradually weaken into a tropical depression by Tuesday as it continues to move inland.
