Super Typhoon Mangkhut path: DANGEROUS barrelling storm on collision course with Hong Kong

SUPER Typhoon Mangkhut is the latest major storm powering through the Pacific ocean, putting millions at risk from severe winds and rain. Where is Super Typhoon Mangkhut right now?

Super Typhoon Mangkhut is swirling jut off the coast of Hong Kong, threatening to bear down on the country with winds topping 160mph.

Already, Mangkhut has swept past the US territory of Guam, where flooding and power outages were widespread.

At its current trajectory, the storm is set to batter Hong Kong with these extreme winds this weekend.

Super Typhoon Mangkhut has already surpassed typhoon Jebi as the most powerful this year, just one week after the major system set down on Japan.

Typhoon Mangkhut is currently situated roughly 869 miles east of Manila.

The storm is running at a speed of 13mph in a westward direction, which sees it heading directly towards Hong Kong.

Before the storm slams into Hong Kong, the Philippines and southern Taiwan are going to feel the effects.

The storm is expected to make landfall in Southern China by Monday morning next week.

Hong Kong and Macau are both on track to receive the storm’s heaviest winds and rains earlier on Sunday.

Official projections from the Hong Kong Observatory (HKO) say that the storm will violently brush the cities.

Mangkhut is predicted to make landfall at 136mph, within 50 miles of Hong Kong, just gracing Macau as it comes.
