Storyline


Lekima, the ninth and strongest typhoon of the year, had affected over 10.29 million people in eight Chinese provinces and Shanghai Municipality by Tuesday morning as it churned through China's east coast starting on Saturday.

According to the Ministry of Emergency Management, as of 07:00 Tuesday, the typhoon had affected more than 10.29 million people in the eastern provinces of Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Anhui, Shandong and Fujian, Shanghai Municipality, the northeastern provinces of Liaoning and Jilin, and north China's Hebei Province. About 1.77 million people in these places were relocated.

The typhoon also destroyed about 8,100 houses, damaged 52,000 houses, and devastated 739,900 hectares of crops.

More than 30,000 firefighters from Zhejiang, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Shandong and other places participated in the rescue and relief operations. They rescued and evacuated a total of 9,520 people.

Over 300 million yuan (about 42 million U.S. dollars) has been allocated to help with rescue and relief work in the provinces of Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Shandong.

Authorities have mobilized rescue and relief efforts, with the participation of firefighters, soldiers, policemen and government staff.

Lekima landed at around 01:45 Saturday in the city of Wenling in Zhejiang. It made a second landing at 20:50 Sunday on the coast of Qingdao in Shandong Province.

The water-logging caused by downpours receded on Monday in Linhai City of east China's Zhejiang Province, and soldiers were deployed to remove debris and spray disinfectant along streets.

At 08:00 Tuesday morning, Lekima weakened to a tropical depression. At 11:00, it was at the northwest of Yantai City, Shandong Province and moving northeastwards with its intensity gradually weakening.

According to the Ministry of Water Resources, rising water level is expected in some rivers in the provinces of Hebei and Jilin and floods may occur in rainstorm-affected areas.

Affected by Typhoon Lekima, Qinhuangdao, a coastal city in north China's Hebei Province, was drenched by heavy rain and slammed by strong wind on Sunday and Monday. The city has closed all the scenic spots.

The National Meteorological Center continued to issue a blue alert for rainstorm at 10:00, with heavy rains expected in northern and northeastern regions. The National Marine Environmental Forecasting Center lifted the warnings of waves and storm surges Tuesday morning.
