Watch the damage caused by Typhoon Hato

The worst typhoon in five years has slammed into Hong Kong, China, hitting it with hurricane force winds and heavy rain.

Typhoon Hato caused more than 400 flights to be cancelled and most businesses were closed.

Nearly 200 trees have been uprooted, blocking roads, and cars have been left under water and roads flooded.

Metre-high waves crashed onto the shores and construction cranes swayed on skyscrapers in Hong Kong.
