A super typhoon packing winds of up to 150 miles per hour is heading towards the Philippines, picking up speed over the Pacific on a route that also has Taiwan and the heavily populated south eastern coast of China in its sights.

Super Typhoon Mangkhut is on track to hit the northern Philippines with its strongest winds today before striking Taiwan and then veering towards Hong Kong as well as southern China’s Guangdong Province by the weekend.
