Super typhoon Mangkhut - expected to be the strongest typhoon this year - is rapidly gathering momentum in the Pacific as it heads towards populous Asian coasts.

The tropical cyclone - having already hovered through Marshall Islands and Guam earlier this week - could also impact Taiwan and Vietnam.

The Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System said the more than 27.3 million people will be exposed to the power of Mangkhut.

Filipino residents in Bacoor city, south of Manila, ride on a makeshift raft on a river ahead of impending super typhoon Mangkhut.

The Super Typhoon now has winds *averaging* 290km/h. They are the ones greatly affected.

In the 5 a.m. weather update of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the eye of Ompong was located at 875 kilometers East of Virac, Catanduanes and has maintained its strength with maximum sustained winds of up to 205 kilometers per hour (kph) and gustiness of up to 255 kph.

President Rodrigo Duterte canceled his appearance at a missile test firing aboard a navy ship off northern Bataan province due to the approaching typhoon and instead led a meeting with disaster-response agencies and defense officials in Manila.

Residents in the typhoon's path should be on the lookout for possible storm surges, floods and landslides, PAGASA had warned. The Pearl River Delta region, which includes Hong Kong and Macau, is among the most densely populated in the world.

It's expected to be 179 nautical miles (331.5 kilometers) off Kaohsiung in southern Taiwan on September 15 before heading to Hong Kong, according to the USA agency.

Mangkhut was barreling across the Pacific Ocean with wind gusts of more than 250 kilometers an hour (155 mph).

With the predicted path of the typhoon, it could also hit Taiwan and Hong Kong next.

Weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said Mangkhut will enter the PAR on Wednesday afternoon and storm signals may be raised by Wednesday evening.

"The worst cases are those areas which will be directly hit by strong winds that can topple houses, storm surges and heavy rains that can cause flooding, and there may be landslides in higher areas", Jalad told reporters.

"Although there are still uncertainties in the subsequent track of Mangkhut and its distance from Hong Kong, Mangkhut's extensive circulation will bring significantly deteriorating weather to Hong Kong on Sunday with frequent heavy squally showers".
