Typhoon Floods Chinese Villages, Forces 1 Million to Flee

BEIJING — A typhoon pummeled China's eastern coast Sunday, toppling houses, flooding villages and forcing nearly a million people to flee to safety. Officials rode bicycles to distribute food to residents trapped by rising waters.

Typhoon Morakot struck after triggering the worst flooding in Taiwan 50 years, leaving dozens missing and feared dead and toppling a six-story hotel. It earlier lashed the Philippines, killing at least 21 people.

I hope that China allows foreign aid to enter if this typhoon proves to be catastrophic.
I fear that China will suppress news reports much like the government of Myanmar did a couple years back when there was a horrible storm there, in which at least one million died.
I'll be keeping my eyes out for further issues to arrise from this.

CNN is reporting at least one (1) confirmed death; (see bottom link).
