At least thirty-eight people are dead, as per Reuters news agency, and large parts of the Philippines have been damaged after Super Typhoon Rammasun bought a wave of destruction to the country on Wednesday, July 18.

At least eight more are missing according to rescue officials, while 7,000 houses have been destroyed and a further 19,000 damaged as the storm – the most powerful in the region this year – cut across the main island of Luzon.

The cyclone has now reached China's Hainan Province - one of the strongest ever to hit China's coast - killing one, after making landfall in Wenchange City on Friday.
