The rains wreaked havoc in 14 counties, cities and districts, affecting 3.61 lakh local residents and forcing 30,900 of them to evacuate, local government said.
Meanwhile, 13,350 hectares of crops were damaged and 150 houses were damaged. The heavy rains also pushed water in several local rivers above the warning levels and forced some to discharge flood waters into large reservoirs, a state-run news agency reported.
Rainstorms brought by Typhoon Trami also have swept the southeastern coastal provinces of Zhejiang and Fujian, affecting 1.4 million people and forcing relocation of
351,000, the Ministry of Civil Affairs said.
Trami made landfall in Fuqing City, Fujian Province early on Thursday morning and weakened to a tropical depression in neighboring Jiangxi Province.
