Typhoon Mangkhut tore through the Philippines' main island of Luzon leaving a trail of devastation.mangkhut 2

Winds of 185km/h ripped off roofs, felled trees, with heavy rain causing extensive flooding.

The rain also caused over 30 major landslides across tha affected area.

Officially 40 people have died, but the toll  is expected to rise as response teams reach the many rural areas still cut off by the flooding.

With sewerage systems being overwhelmed contaminated water is a major health risk.

The typhoon also flattened homes, flooded large swathes of countryside and devastated rice fields.

At least 5,000,000 million people live in the affected area with many thousands evacuated.
