Authorities have evacuated almost one million people living on China's
south-eastern coast ahead of the impending arrival of Typhoon Morakot.
Some 473,000 residents of Zhejiang province have been evacuated as well as 480,000 from Fujian, Xinhua reports.
More than 35,000 boats have been called to shore. Morakot dumped 2.5m of rain on Taiwan as it crossed the island. The flooding in Taiwan was the worst to hit some of the southern counties in half a century.
one of the rescued villagers, Lin Chien-chung, told United Evening News that he believed at least 600 people were still buried in the mud.
