Typhoon Mangkhut, which is currently a Category 4 hurricane, is due to make landfall on the northern tip of the main island of Luzon by Saturday.

Schools and offices are being closed and farmers are racing to save crops.
Ten million people are in the path of the storm, along with millions more in coastal areas of southern China.
The Philippines is hit by about 20 typhoons and storms a year.
