HONG KONG (AP) — The Latest on Typhoon Mangkhut:

Philippine police say the death toll from Typhoon Mangkhut has climbed to 64. The national police also say 45 other people are missing and 33 were injured in the massive storm, which battered the northern Philippines on Saturday.

The hardest-hit province was Benguet, where 38 people died, mostly in two landslides, and 37 remain missing. After blowing past the Philippines, the typhoon lashed Hong Kong and other parts of southern China on Sunday.

The article goes on to state the following:

A Philippine police officer says at least 40 people, mostly gold miners, are feared to have been trapped in a landslide in the country’s north and seven bodies have been dug out by rescuers.

Police Superintendent Pelita Tacio tells The Associated Press that a part of a mountain slope collapsed on the miners’ bunkhouses in a far-flung village of Itogon town in Benguet province as Typhoon Mangkhut’s ferocious winds and rain pounded the gold-mining region on Saturday.

The AP also reports:

Chinese state media say more than 2.45 million people have been relocated in southern China’s Guangdong province to flee Typhoon Mangkhut.

State media also cited the Guangdong provincial meteorological station as saying that by Sunday evening, nearly 50,000 fishing boats had been called back to port.

The official Xinhua News Agency says groceries flew off the shelves of supermarkets in the provincial capital of Guangzhou as residents stocked up in preparation for being confined at home by the typhoon.
