At least 28 dead after Typhoon Lekima lands in east China

Hangzhou, Aug 11 (UNI) A total of 28 people died and 20 remain missing in east China's Zhejiang Province after typhoon Lekima made landfall in the province on Saturday, local authorities said on Sunday morning.

Nearly 1.08 million people have been evacuated to safe places, and close to 5 million people in Zhejiang were affected, said the provincial flood control headquarters.

According to Xinhua news report, the typhoon landed around 0145 hrs Saturday in Zhejiang, bringing heavy rainstorms and triggering flash floods. In Yongjia County, torrential downpours caused a landslide that blocked rivers. The barrier lake bursted and flooded people away.

Lekima is expected to churn up the east coast towards Shandong Province on Sunday.
