A storm surge sends huge waves into Hong Kong, as the city is forced into shutdown by Typhoon Mangkhut.

The territory was put on the highest alert level for only the fourth time in 20 years.

The strong winds toppled cranes and shattered windows in many high-rise buildings.

All businesses were closed and public transport shut down. All schools will be closed Monday.

Al Jazeera’s Sarah Clarke reports from Hong Kong.
