Typhoon Fitow leaves 6 dead in China

Six people were killed, and 4 others missing as Typhoon Fitow hit east China\’s Zhejiang Province, affecting more than three million people.
The powerful storm made landfall in Fujian province on Monday with winds of up to 150 kilometers per hour. Much of the surrounding area still was submerged in floodwaters as of Tuesday.
The storm has since weakened, but torrential rains continued in nearby Zhejiang province, prompting the government\’s highest emergency flood response.
The Xinhua news agency says over 4,000 homes collapsed in the storm. Many areas are without power and rail and air transportation has been suspended.
Fitow is named after a flower from Micronesia. The typhoon is the 23rd to hit China this year.
