CHINA ZHEJIANG TYPHOON LEKIMA

Chinese rescuers evacuate an elderly man in floodwater after heavy rainstorm caused by the Typhoon Lekima, the 9th typhoon of the year, in Ningbo city, east China's Zhejiang province, 10 August 2019. A total of 30 people have died and 18 remain missing after super typhoon Lekima made landfall in eastern China's Zhejiang province on Saturday, local authorities said on Sunday (11 August 2019). Most of the deaths occurred in Yongjia County, administered by Wenzhou City, where torrential downpours caused a landslide that blocked a river. The barrier lake burst and flooded waters swept people away. 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. Lekima, the ninth typhoon and the strongest this year, landed around 1:45 a.m. Saturday in the city of Wenling in Zhejiang, packing winds of 187 kilometers per hour and bringing heavy rainstorms.
