A massive clean-up operation is under way across large parts of southern China, after one of the most powerful storms in the past 30 years hit the region on Sunday.

State media said at least 25 people were killed as Typhoon Usagi ripped through Guangdong province, with winds gusting at up to 155 km per hour.

Millions of people on the Chinese mainland have also been affected by extensive flooding in many areas.
