Typhoon Haikui hits China's east coast
Typhoon Haikui has hit eastern China, flooding roads, knocking out power and disrupting transport in one of the nation's most populous regions.
The storm came ashore in Zhejiang province early on Wednesday bringing heavy rains and winds of up to 150km per hour.
More than 1.5 million people were evacuated ahead of the storm, which is expected to hover over Zhejiang province for most of Wednesday.
The storm also led to the cancellation of many domestic and international flights from Shanghai's two airports.
Haikui is the third typhoon to hit China's eastern coast in a week after storms Saola and Damrey hit the region over the weekend, causing flooding and landslides.
