Tufão na China

Ocorreu terça-feira um tufão no sul da China.

"SHANGHAI, China - A powerful typhoon pounded China's southern coast with heavy winds and rain Thursday, killing at least two people and flooding scores of homes. More than a half million people had been evacuated from their homes.

Typhoon Chanchu, which was later downgraded to a tropical storm, slammed the city of Shantou in Guangdong province overnight before moving north into Fujian province before dawn, the official Xinhua News Agency said.

Two children were killed when their homes collapsed on top of them near Shantou, Xinhua said. The storm also flooded nearly 200 homes and cut electricity in the area."
