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.

Three million people have been evacuated after a typhoon dubbed the "king of storms" hit landfall in China having already ravaged Hong Kong and left dozens dead in the Philippines.

Palangdan said three villagers who almost got buried by the huge pile of mud and rocks told authorities they saw residents rush into an old three-story building, a former mining bunkhouse that has been transformed into a chapel, at the height of the typhoon's onslaught Saturday afternoon.

Ompong, the world's most powerful storm this year, pounded the Philippines at the weekend with torrential rains and violent winds that snapped utility poles and sheared roofs off homes.

"As of now, we are still looking for the 36 still missing individuals that are still unverified", Lt.Gen Emmanuel Salamat of the Philippines Armed Forces said. Power and water disruptions continued to plague some areas on Monday. Men used pikes and shovels to dig into the mud because the soaked ground was unstable and limited the use of heavy equipment on site.

The death toll in the Philippines has been raised to at least 65, while 43 others are missing following landslides and building collapses.

Earlier, more than 400 flights at two airports in China's southernmost island Province of Hainan with all coastal resorts and schools closed as Typhoon Mangkhut approached.

Still, the Philippines appeared to have been spared the high number of casualties many had feared. The hardest-hit province was Benguet, where 38 people died, mostly in two landslides, and 37 remain missing. About 63,000 people have been affected, and the damage has not yet been fully assessed as numerous worst-hit areas are rural.
