11-08-2012

Authorities in Anhui province say electricity supplies have now been restored to 962,000 households left without power after the province was battered by Typhoon Haikui.

Xinhua News Agency said the storm destroyed more than 1,500 houses and damaged 80,000 hectares of farmland. It said 163,000 people had to be relocated.

Xinhua said Haikui left six people dead in Anhui and Jiangxi provinces, as well as the city of Shanghai, after it made landfall on Wednesday morning.

It was the third typhoon to strike China's eastern coast in a week after Saola and Damrey hit the region last weekend.
