Typhoon In-Fa sweeps into China after flooding chaos

China's eastern coast is bracing for a major typhoon just days after deadly floods devastated parts of the country.

Typhoon In-Fa make landfall in the city of Zhoushan at 12:30 local time (04:30 GMT), state media reported.

Flights and train services have been suspended, while people have been ordered to stay indoors.

Disruptive winds, rough seas and flooding are expected. Meanwhile, dozens of ships have been evacuated from a busy port south of Shanghai.

The typhoon follows a period of historic flooding that caused widespread damage and killed at least 58 people in central China.

Emergency crew are still working around the clock to rescue survivors and provide aid to the tens of millions of people affected by the floods.

Typhoon In-Fa could bring more torrential downpours to the stricken region in the coming days, and officials fear it could hamper rescue and recovery efforts.
