Floods in north-eastern China and a typhoon in the southern provinces have killed dozens and left millions affected, officials announced Sunday.
The north-eastern flooding was the worst seen in decades, with the Jilin province civil affairs department saying some 890,000 people have been affected, 35,000 houses destroyed or damaged, and economic losses estimated at 2.4 billion yuan (387 million U.S. dollars), according to reports by Xinihua news agency.
The provincial flood control and drought relief headquarters says over 100,000 people have been relocated.
In neighboring Heilongjiang province, 11 deaths have been reported and three people are missing since August 10 when the floods began.
Two million have been affected in Heilonogjiant province and 140,000 relocated according to the provincial civil affairs department.
In areas where the rainfall was heaviest, highways and railways were cut off and bridges damaged.
Meanwhile, Typhoon Utor battered the southern province of Guangdong and the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, killing at least 10 people, with four more missing, according to Xinhua.
The typhoon was the strongest of the year. It landed near Yangjiang Guangdong after crossing the Philippines earlier this week. Image/Xinhua
