Super Typhoon Usagi -- one of the strongest storms of the year -- barrelled towards Hong Kong and southern China, prompting warnings of fierce winds and torrential rains.

Packing gusts of up to 205 kilometres per hour, the storm is projected to roar between the Philippines and Taiwan before smashing into the southern Chinese coast later in the weekend.

It is the strongest typhoon in the west Pacific region this year.
