BEIJING (Worthy News)-- Super Typhoon Rammasun left a trail of destruction that left at least 40 dead in the Philippines and now is heading for China still packing winds up to 123 MPH.
China's National Meteorological Centre (NMC) said Super Typhoon Rammasun was on course to hit Hainan island and Guangdong province late in the afternoon.
The outer bands of the storm lashed Hong Kong overnight with heavy rain and strong winds but the city was spared a direct hit as the typhoon veered west towards Hainan.
Packing winds on Friday morning of up to 198 kilometres (123 miles) an hour, the super typhoon was expected to bring torrential rains, the NMC said.
China's official news agency Xinhua said Rammasun was expected to be the strongest typhoon to hit Hainan in 40 years. -- Source
