HONG KONG - A "super typhoon" swirled towards Hong Kong and the Chinese coastline on Sunday morning, gaining in strength over the South China sea after hurtling through the Philippines, where its trail of devastation killed at least seven.

Tropical cyclone Mangkhut is considered the strongest to hit the region this year, packing gale force winds of more than 200 kph (125 mph), equivalent to a maximum Category 5 "intense hurricane" in the Atlantic.

Philippine authorities confirmed 6 people were killed in landslides with four more missing, while another was found dead in a river in Manila, the capital.
