Super Typhoon Lekima

At least 28 people have been killed and more than a million forced from their homes as typhoon Lekima hit China.

Officials said the deaths were caused by a landslide triggered by the storm. Ten others have been reported missing.

Lekima made landfall in the early hours of Saturday in Wenling, between Taiwan and China's financial capital Shanghai.

The storm was initially designated a "Super Typhoon", but weakened slightly before landfall.

Lekima is now slowly winding its way north through the Zhejiang province, and is expected to hit shanghai, which has a population of more than 20 million.

Emergency crews have battled to save stranded motorists from floods and searched for survivors in the rubble of damaged buildings. Fallen trees and power cuts are widespread.
