Fanapi, which landed in coastal Fujian Province, southeast China Monday, wreaked havoc in Fujian and Guangdong before it weakened into a low pressure system at 5 a.m. Tuesday.
The typhoon packed torrential rain in most parts of Guangdong Province in the 24 hours from 9 a.m. Monday to 9 a.m. Tuesday. The average precipitation topped 100 millimeters, the worst in 100 years, the provincial weather bureau said in a statement.
It said precipitation totaled 550 mm in 24 hours in the worst-hit Shuangyao Township in Yangchun City.
Heavy rain triggered floods and landslides in Maoming City, where more than 8,000 people were evacuated, although no deaths or injuries were reported.
