The eastern province sustained 8.37 billion yuan ($1.37 billion) in damage, as the storm caused about 4,000 houses to collapse, damaged roads and suspended power in many places, Xinhua said. Zhejiang lifted a a red alert issued this morning around noon, the center said.

A second typhoon, Danas, was working its way north off of Shanghai’s coast toward Japan and South Korea, causing flight cancelations and discontinuing ferry service. Storm and high wave warnings were issued in Japan as wind gusts reached 180 kilometers per hour (112 miles per hour).
