Typhoon Kills 95 in China; 30 Missing

The death toll from last week's Typhoon Talim (search) has climbed by 13 to at least 95 on the Chinese mainland, with another 30 people missing, the government Monday.

Some 59 deaths occurred Anhui (search), a poor inland province where thousands of houses were destroyed by flooding and landslides, the official Xinhua News Agency and state television reported.

The reports didn't say where the other deaths occurred, but 14 fatalities were reported earlier in the southeastern coastal city of Wenzhou.

Talim roared ashore Thursday on China's mainland, destroying houses and crops and disrupting power supplies after killing two people and injuring 24 on Taiwan.

It weakened to a tropical storm late Thursday but continued to dump torrential rain on inland areas.

Flooding, landslides and mudflows were reported in a vast swath of central and southeastern China, including Fujian, Zhejiang, Jiangxi and Hubei provinces, as well as Anhui.

State television showed rescue workers wearing lifejackets using boats to help villagers escape flooded homes.

Economic losses were estimated at 12 billion yuan ($1.5 billion), Xinhua said.
