As it moved northwards at 22km/h, with winds of up to 175km/h and creating waves at least 13 metres high, Goni caused chaos in Shanghai, prompting the cancellation of at least 139 flights. More than 71 flights at Shanghai Pudong International Airport were cancelled, and many delayed for two to four hours. Four flights were delayed seven hours. The airport's capacity was cut 30 per cent; the capacity of Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport was down by 60 per cent. The Shanghai meteorological service downgraded its rainstorm warning from orange - the second highest in a four-tier warning system - to its lowest level yesterday afternoon. More than 10,000 police officers were deployed to divert traffic in the city, CCTV reported. Dragonair delayed two flights between Hong Kong and Okinawa, Japan, until today. It advised passengers to check flight statuses on its website. Overall, there were two cancellations and five delays for flights to Okinawa due to Typhoon Goni, an Airport Authority spokeswoman said. Hong Kong Observatory forecaster Ho Chun-kit said Goni was a severe typhoon and it had caused rain bands across the East China Sea. "We expect it to start weakening as it approaches Japan - the worst weather will be affecting Japan and Korea [today] and Wednesday," he said. In the Philippines, the official death toll from landslides and floods rose to 26. Rescue teams clawed away at a mountainside near the remote mining town of Mankayan in the country's north after recovering the bodies of 13 miners buried two days earlier. "The landslide buried miners sheltering in huts used as a rest area. The slope collapsed after being saturated with rain," a civil defence spokeswoman said. Nearly a thousand homes in the northern Philippines were destroyed, forcing more than 12,000 people to flee. The storm was on course to hit the island of Kyushu today, said Japan's meteorological agency.
