    Another report said a 61-year-old woman who fainted at her home died after floods prevented doctors from reaching her for more than 24 hours.
     
    Elsewhere some village homes on the peninsula's east coast were damaged by strong waves whipped up by storms, with more than 500 people fleeing their homes to rescue centres.
