Typhoon SOULIK hits China’s Fujian province

Up to half a million people were evacuated and thousands of soldiers deployed as SOULIK battered China’s southeastern Fujian province with winds of about 120 km/h and torrential rains.

The authorities cancelled scores of flights at Fuzhou’s Changle International Airport and suspended dozens of high-speed trains, reports said.

The typhoon, which struck Taiwan at 3:00am on Saturday, has reportedly caused severe damage to the island, killing or injuring dozens of people.

The full extent of damage was not yet reported, as of posting.

Extreme Rain Events have buffeted southwestern China triggering flash floods and landslides, which have affected million of people, and left hundreds dead or missing in the past few days.
