More than 30 people are feared dead and many are missing after a devastating storm swept over the Philippines, APA reports citing BBC.

Super Typhoon Rai crashed into the country's southeastern islands on Thursday, levelling homes and bringing winds of about 195km/h (120mph).

The strongest storm to hit the Philippines this year has toppled power poles, uprooted trees and left three million people without electricity.

The country's disaster agency says the reported death toll stands at 31.

Four people are confirmed killed and 27 are believed to have died, it said in a statement.

Rescue operations are now under way in the devastated regions.
