Hong Kong streets filled with debris after typhoon Mangkhut hits

Eyewitness phone footage showed debris, including broken glass and tree branches strewn across the streets of Kowloon.

Financial markets and offices were operating as normal on Monday.

Super typhoon Mangkhut, with hurricane-force winds over 200 kilometers per hour (124 miles/h), had barrelled past the northern tip of the Philippines, killing at least 50 people. It then skirted south of Hong Kong and the neighbouring gambling hub of Macau, before making landfall in China.

Parts of Hong Kong and Macau were severely flooded, though there were no immediate reports of any fatalities. Two people were reported killed in Guangdong, China’s most populous province and home to over 2.45 million residents, state media reported.
