 Typhoon Muifa hits China: 1.6 million people evacuated

Tropical cyclone "Muifa" hit the east coast of China, forcing about 1.6 million people to flee their homes.

An estimated 426,000 people are known to have evacuated from Shanghai due to the raging disaster, and another 1.2 million people were brought to makeshift shelters in neighboring Zhejiang province.

Heavy rains led to floods and landslides, while gale-force winds caused giant waves to hit the coast of Hangzhou Bay, south of Shanghai.
