Asia PhOtOs -SUPER Typhoon Chan-hom Leaves Thousands Stranded

More than 1 Million People Evacuated as Typhoon Chan-hom Smashes into Eastern China with Waves Bigger than Six-Storey Buildings

  • Super Typhoon Chan-hom, which hit the Chinese coast on Saturday with winds of up to 101 miles per hour
  • More than 1.1m have been evacuated, hundreds of flights grounded and thousands of ships called back to port
  • Provincial authorities estimate economic losses from Chan-hom could reach more than 197million
Daily Mail UK, 12 July 2015


More than 1.1million people have been evacuated in eastern China after heavy rains and flooding hit the coast in the wake of Super Typhoon Chan-hom on Sunday.



Although the area took less of a battering than feared, the tropical storm saw winds of up to 100 miles per hour, and coastlines battered by six-storey high waves.

Super Typhoon Chan-hom changed course and lost much of its strength shortly after making landfall near Shanghai late on Saturday, but resulting rains flooded cities in Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Anhui provinces.

Huge waves struck the coast in Wenling, in the east of worst-hit province Zhejiang, while further north people in the city of Shaoxing scrambled onto diggers and dragged themselves along ropes to escape the floodwaters.

Provincial authorities estimate economic losses from the storm could reach more than 1.9 billion yuan (197million), particularly in the agricultural sector, Chinese state media reported.

Chan-hom, which Chinese government meteorologists feared would be the powerful typhoon to hit China in decades, packed winds of 101 mph as it landed on the coast of Zhejiang Province but soon veered back to sea and toward the Korean peninsula.

China's eastern coast took less of a battering than feared after Super Typhoon Chan-hom changed course and lost much of its strength shortly after making landfall near Shanghai late on Saturday.

Hundreds of flights have been grounded in China and South Korea and tens of thousands of ships have been called back to port



Meteorological agencies in China, South Korea and Japan downgraded Chan-hom to a tropical storm on Sunday, warning it would continue to lash surrounding coastal areas with heavy rainfall and gales as it moved across the Yellow Sea.

No casualties had been reported by midday Sunday, according to the official Xinhua news agency.

Economic activity on China's wealthy eastern seaboard was heavily disrupted as authorities cancelled trains and flights out of two Shanghai airports and ordered tens of thousands of ships back to port.

Five people in the Philippines were killed earlier in the week and more than 20 people injured in Japan on Friday.
Taiwan was also affected by the storm, closing its stock market and shutting schools and offices Friday as heavy rainfall and fierce winds battered the north.

A number of flights in and out of Japan's Okinawa island chain and northern Taiwan were cancelled.

Weather authorities said the typhoon would be downgraded to a tropical storm when it reaches North Korea's Hwanghae province on Monday morning.
