Storm lashes China after killing 17 in Philippines
BEIJING (AP) - Southern China was hit by fresh flooding on Thursday as the second storm in a week lashed the region after killing 17 people in the Philippines.
Typhoon Trami skirted Taiwan before landing in China's Fujian province early on Thursday morning and weakening into a tropical storm.
It was heading northwest, bringing heavy rain to a region still feeling the effects of Typhoon Utor, which ground across Guangxi, Guangdong and Hunan provinces over the weekend.
Minor damage from Trami was reported in coastal areas, but no deaths or injuries had been reported as a result of the storm by Thursday afternoon.
