Typhoons leave destruction in China

EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL (ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Eastern China on Friday (August 3) grappled with floods brought by two typhoons that took two lives and prompted an evacuation of 870,000 people, state media reported. Typhoons Saola and Damrey landed within 10 hours of each other on Thursday (August 1) night to Friday (August 2) morning, tearing down trees and flooding fields and towns in the eastern Fujian, Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Shandong provinces. The typhoons have affected more than two million people, reported state newspaper China Daily. Damrey, which landed in Jiangsu at about 2130 local time (1330 GMT) on Thursday (August 2), weakened but continued to head north and brought torrential rain to the northeastern Shandong province, state media reported.
