Southeast China was digging out Tuesday from flooding and landslides after remnants of Typhoon Krosa deluged the region with torrential rains, causing damage estimated at more than US$1 billion.
The storm dissipated late Monday, leaving flooded streets and fields, washed-out roads and railway lines and thousands of destroyed buildings, the official Xinhua News Agency and state television reports said.
There were no reports of casualties from Krosa, downgraded from a typhoon to a tropical storm on Sunday.
Authorities arranged the evacuations of nearly 1.6 million people in Fujian and Zhejiang provinces, to the south of Shanghai.
