Tuguegarao (Philippines): Super Typhoon Mangkhut – the biggest storm of the year – smashed through the Philippines, claiming its first victims as two women were killed when a rain-drenched hillside collapsed on them and another drowned in Taiwan.

The massive storm cut a swathe of destruction when it struck the northern tip of Luzon island, threatening the lives and homes of roughly four million people and causing floods, landslides and power outages.
