Typhoon In-fa hits China, heavy rain expected as storm slows

Global News published this video item, entitled “Typhoon In-fa hits China, heavy rain expected as storm slows” – below is their description.

China’s commercial hub Shanghai and neighbouring coastal regions cancelled all flights, slowed or suspended subway trains and shuttered businesses as typhoon In-fa made landfall on Sunday, bringing flooding and felling around 1,000 trees.

The typhoon landed in the Putuo district of the city of Zhoushan, a major port in the east coast province of Zhejiang, at 12:30 p.m. local time on Sunday, state broadcaster CCTV said, citing the China Meteorological Administration.

The storm hit as central China was still reeling from record flooding that killed at least 63, cut off power and forced the relocation of more than one million people.

Global’s Ross Hull has the story.
