Over a million people were evacuated after what could be the most powerful July typhoon in China's recent history hit the country's coast near the densely populated city of Shanghai.
"It was so windy that the rain came in through the windows even though they were closed," a local resident told AP.
Over 500 millimeters of rain fell in some areas, suspending trains and flights in the region. No casualties have so far been reported, although local authorities reported that over 710,000 people have been affected by the damage, according to Xinhua.
The typhoon led some 94 houses to collapse so far, while nearly 140 villages lost power.
The economic damage from the typhoon is estimated to be at around $318 million, according to Xinhua.
