Footage from East Asia shows the battering that much of the area is currently facing, as typhoon Mangkhut tears through – nicknamed by Chinese media as the ‘King of the Storms’.
Considered the strongest storm of this year, the typhoon has killed as many as 49 in the Philippines, where landslides caused by heavy rain have been affecting the area.
In Hong Kong, authorities issued the maximum alert, warning people to stay indoors – with winds reportedly reaching more than 110mph (177kph).
Twitter user, @WizDayTrader, shared a video clip of people on the streets in Hong Kong, writing: “If you thought Florence was bad… check out Cat5 #Mangkhut in Hong Kong right now.”
In the footage, you can see someone get pushed into the wall by the strong winds, while another is struggling to get their feet.
Many people commented to question why people had gone out in such adverse conditions, with one writing: “We had a week of warning and yet people are so moronic to go for a walk.”
