Super Typhoon Haima (Super Typhoon Lawin in Philippines) claimed lives off at least 12 people in Philippines.
Eight of the victims are from the Cordillera region, Reuters reported quoting Ricardo Jalad, chief of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.
Haima made landfall over Peñablanca, Cagayan of the Philippines at 15:00 UTC on October 19, 2016. Two days later, Haima made landfall over Haifeng County, Shanwei in the Guangdong province of China.

Haima made landfall in Philippines with destructive 225 kph (140 mph) winds and heavy rain causing widespread flooding in the region.
Similarly, several flights and train services have been canceled in and out of Hongkong as well. The Hong Kong Observatory has issued its third-highest storm warning, Signal No. 8, early Friday morning.
