Nanmadol Makes Landfall In Fujian

BEIJING, Aug. 31 (UPI) — Nanmadol hit east China’s Fujian Province early Wednesday as a tropical storm, after killing several people in the Philippines and wreaking havoc in Taiwan.

The storm landed in Fujian’s Jinjiang city after 2 a.m. Wednesday, bringing heavy rains as it weakened into a tropical depression, Chinese meteorologists said. There were no immediate reports of injuries, China’s state-run Xinhua news service reported.

The storm was expected to weaken further before leaving Jinjiang. Authorities issued flood and landslide warnings as more rains were in the forecast.

Nanmadol struck the Philippines with typhoon force last week and the death toll since then has risen to at least 25, the country’s National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council was quoted as saying Tuesday. The storm was named Mina in that country.

The agency said another 12 people remained missing as of Tuesday, and another 30 were injured. The storm affected more than 70,000 families, with about 800 families placed in evacuation centers.

In Taiwan, the storm was blamed for at least one death. Several hundred homes were leveled there and some essential services were disrupted.
