Storyline


Typhoon Lekima weakened into a tropical depression near the coast of east China's Shandong Province on Tuesday.

China's National Meteorological Center removed a blue alert at 10:00 on the day.

Some 12.88 million people in nine provincial-level regions of China had been affected by Typhoon Lekima as of 16:00 Tuesday, the Ministry of Emergency Management said.

About 2 million people in the provinces of Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shandong, Anhui, Fujian, Hebei, Liaoning and Jilin as well as the city of Shanghai had been relocated, the ministry said.

The typhoon, the ninth and strongest of the year, has left 48 dead and 21 missing in Zhejiang, Shandong and Anhui.

According to Shandong Yantai Maritime Bureau, passenger ferry service shuttling between Yantai and Dalian City of northeast China resumed on Tuesday morning.

Shandong Emergency Management Office said by 07:00 Tuesday, five had been killed and seven people missing due to the typhoon. Around 300,000 people had been evacuated and more than 3.5 million people affected by the typhoon.

Shandong Province launched a second-class emergency response mechanism, and sent tents, quilts, make-shift beds and other rescue materials to the affected residents.

Due to Typhoon Lekima, 37 villages of Zaozhuang City in the province saw serious flood, with farms submerged by the flood. But now the flooding has receded. Local health authorities are disinfecting flooded areas and livestock farms to prevent epidemic. Local villagers try to air their grains to minimize their losses.

"I found all my grains were soaked in the flood. So when it clears up, I want to hurry up and dry them so as to reduce my losses." said Sun Jinya, a farmer.
Zhejiang Province was the worst hit area as the typhoon landed there first when it arrived in the Chinese mainland, leaving 39 dead and nine missing. Rescue operations are underway to help people resume daily lives.

More than 200 households of Linhai, a county-level city of Taizhou City, were reconnected with the electricity network at 09:00 Tuesday.

"We had no electricity supply for four or five days and it was very inconvenient for our daily life. Now with electricity, everything has resumed. I am so happy, very happy,” said Dong Lingzhu, a local resident.

Power supply has resumed to 99 percent of the more than four million affected households across the province.
