The Super Typhoon Mangkhut made a violent entry into the northern Philippines on Saturday.
The violent winds and torrential rains caused destruction even as authorities had warned millions of the lethal nature of the typhoon.
The storm has been dubbed by many as the strongest typhoon this year.
It packed powerful gusts of up to 255 kilometres (160 miles) per hour heading west across the disaster-prone archipelago towards China.
Even the Japan Japan Meteorological Agency had forecasted that Mangkhut typhoon is by far the strongest.
What is all the more of concern is that after blasting the Philippines, Mangkhut is predicted to hurtle towards China’s heavily populated southern coast this weekend.
However, the Hong Kong Observatory warned that the massive typhoon will pose a “severe threat” to China’s
southern coast before moving on to northern Vietnam.>
