DHAKA: Typhoon Haikui made landfall early on Wednesday morning in Zhejiang province south of Shanghai, after authorities moved nearly two million people to safety.
Shanghai media reported that glass falling from a building killed a 57-year-old woman and the collapse of a small chemical factory led to the death of a young boy sheltering inside with his family.
The city’s flood control and drought relief headquarters confirmed the deaths and said seven other people were also injured in typhoon-triggered accidents, media reported.
Another person was killed in neighbouring Anhui province, where 26,000 were evacuated, local authorities said, reports The Straits Times.
