Typhoon causes widespread damage in China

Wed August 8, 2012 1:01pm

By late afternoon on Wednesday, the typhoon had passed Zhejiang's provincial capital Hangzhou and was forecast to move into Anhui province, bringing rains of up to 400 millimetres in some areas.

Haikui is the third typhoon to hit China in a few days, after two battered other parts of the country over the weekend, killing 23 people, Xinhua reported earlier this week.

Typhoon Saola left 14 dead in the central province of Hubei while nine people were killed in the northeastern province of Liaoning by Typhoon Damrey, it said.

China is hit by typhoons every summer, normally affecting its eastern and southern regions.
