Life normalizing in south China after typhoon

ITOGON, Philippines (AP) — Life is gradually returning to normal along the hard-hit southern Chinese coast, where high-rises swayed, coastal hotels flooded and windows were blown out as a result of Typhoon Mangkhut.

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

In Hong Kong on Monday, crews were clearing fallen trees and other wreckage left when the financial hub felt the full brunt of the storm on Sunday.

Authorities have reported four deaths from falling trees and building materials in Guangdong, China’s manufacturing hub.

At least 65 people died when the storm swept through the northern Philippines over the weekend before lashing southern China.
