In China, more than 2.45 million people were relocated and more than 48,000 fishing boats returned to ports in Guangdong province as 5 p.m. Sunday, when Mangkhut made landfall.

Both Vietnamese and global weather stations have predicted that the storm turned depression will directly affect the northern and northern central regions.

The typhoon brought record storm surges as well, whipping up floodwaters to their highest levels since 1904, according to meteorologists.

The storm sustained speed of up to 270 kph (165 mph) when the typhoon hit the Philippines on Saturday (September 15). "Six of them managed to crawl out but two others are missing", Bacalso said.

Manila: The death toll from super typhoon Mangkhut has increased to 65 in the Philippines while 64 people were injured and 43 remain missing, police said on Monday.

In 2013, super typhoon Haiyan devastated the central Philippines, killing more than 6,000 people.

In Hong Kong, Mangkhut made high rises sway and shattered windows. Dozens of residents sought shelter there during the storm Saturday despite warnings it was risky.

"The Guangzhou authorities warned people not to park in underground garages", one resident told RFA.

In Hong Kong, where a monumental cleanup operation was under way, the costs will be substantial, according to Swiss Re Institute.

Francis Tolentino, a political adviser to President Rodrigo Duterte, told the BBC he estimated only a fifth of produce there had been harvested in advance - threatening staples like rice and corn. About 63,000 people have been affected, and the damage has not yet been fully assessed as numerous worst-hit areas are rural. The South China Morning Post said Hong Kong's hospitals had to use backup power due to outages caused by the storm.

The government and casinos took extra measures ahead of the storm, determined to avoid a repeat of Typhoon Hato which battered Macau previous year, killing 12 people and drawing accusations the city was ill-prepared.

Mangkhut swept across the northern Philippines island of Luzon on Saturday, causing a huge landslide in two mining villages near the mountain town of Itogon. CNN reported that more than three million were evacuated for safety reasons.

She said: "We were all crying".

"The rice sector could recover because we have coordinated with the National Irrigation Administration ... to not close the irrigation systems because right after the typhoon our farmers actually could replant", Piñol said in the interview.

Videos and images coming in from Hong Kong and nearby Shenzhen, China, show how destructive the storm is.

Rail, airline and ferry services have been restored and casinos in the gambling enclave of Macau have reopened for business.

China's emergency management ministry, which deals with natural disasters, said in a notice late on Sunday it had already sent 24,000 officers to vulnerable parts of Guangdong, Hainan, Guangxi, Guizhou and Yunnan.
