Storyline


Typhoon Maria is wreaking havoc in east China's Zhejiang Province, tearing down buildings and affecting the daily life of local residents.

Maria made landfall at 09:10 Wednesday in Lianjiang County, Fujian Province, with gales of up to 42 meters per second near the storm's eye, according to local meteorological authorities. Of the eight typhoons this year so far, it is the strongest.

In Taizhou City of Zhejiang, strong gales made the seawater surge, causing huge waves that exceeded ten meters high.

Meanwhile, heavy rain and strong winds lashed buildings in Wenzhou City, tearing off the outer wall of a residential building. No casualties were reported.

In Caomen Village of Wenzhou, a two-storey building was severely damaged by the typhoon. The rooftop was blown off and the walls collapsed. Four people living there had been successfully evacuated without injury. Other villagers were also evacuated from the area.

Dongsha fishing village, a tourism destination in Taizhou City, also sustained damaged caused by the storm. Stone fences surrounding the sea were washed away by strong tides and some houses collapsed. Tourist attractions and some roads have been closed. Clearance and evacuation are underway.
