Super Typhoon Mangkhut (or Ompong) made landfall on the island of Luzon in the Philippines early Saturday morning, before moving into the Chinese province of Guangdong late Sunday afternoon. With sustained winds of up to 107 mph, the typhoon downed trees and caused extensive damage across Guangdong; on Luzon, it brought dangerous storm surge and landslides that have blocked roads, destroyed homes and buried communities. Search and rescue operations are still underway. More than 1,500 people have moved to temporary shelters, and at least 81 were killed with dozens missing on Luzon as a result of landslides triggered by the typhoon.
Our charity partners are working to provide relief to those affected.
