Philippine and Chinese authorities say the death toll from a typhoon has risen to at least 69 with dozens missing. The storm killed another four people in China, where Mangkhut weakened to a tropical storm as it churned inland Monday.

Over a dozen bodies have been found, while up to 40 more people could be entombed - with very little hope they are alive.

"While I said there is a 99-percent chance that all of them are dead, there is still that one-percent chance", Itogon Mayor Victorio Palangdan told AFP.

Hong Kong International Airport said it will resume flights on Monday, while Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. and some other airlines restarted services to the city that was battered over the weekend by a typhoon, forcing the cancellation of nearly 900 flights. "But he hasn t returned until now".

The typhoon struck at the start of the rice and corn harvesting season in the Philippines' northern breadbasket, prompting farmers to scramble to save what they could of their crops, Cagayan Gov. Manuel Mamba said.

Damaged vessels are seen after Super Typhoon Mangkhut hit Hong Kong, China Sept 18, 2018.

Volunteers stayed out late into the evening to help, with one group in the city s Tseung Kwan O district attempting to fix a broken cycling path as darkness fell.

As many as 2.45 million people in Guangdong province had been relocated on Sunday night, the official Xinhua news agency reported.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the Consulate General in Hong Kong and Guangzhou are closely monitoring the situation, while also in close contact with the local authorities for the latest updates and advisories to assist any Malaysians.

Schools were closed, along with bus services, and travel disruption saw commuters piling onto platforms trying to board infrequent trains after trees fell on overhead lines. He further added that the roads never had floods like this one while the windows shook horribly causing a sense of panic among residents. Low elevation and coastal neighborhoods like the beach town of Shek O and waterfront housing estate Heng Fa Chuen experienced flooding. The city's main Victoria Park had become an obstacle course with hundreds of trees down and many completely uprooted.

In Macau, next door to Hong Kong, casinos were ordered to close from 11 p.m. Saturday, the first time such action was taken in the city, the South China Morning Post reported.

On Monday morning, shopkeepers in Macau were hosing down their stores which had been caked in mud after the floodwaters receded. The violent storm killed four people in the southern province of Guangdong, China. "They were resisting when our police tried to pull them away".

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