Typhoon Haikui hits China's east coast

Floods force almost two million people to leave their homes, as China issues a red alert.

    Typhoon Haikui has hit eastern China, with winds gusting up to 150 kilomteres an hour.

    Trees, roads and buildings were torn apart, as rains swamped large areas of Eastern China, stranding hundreds of people.

    The floodwaters have forced almost two million people to leave their homes, prompting China's Weather Office to issue its first red alert of the year.
