At least 10 people died in flash floods and mudslides in neighboring Zhejiang province, where more than 8 inches of rain fell as the effects of Fitow hit the region over a three-day period.
It was the 23rd typhoon to hit China so far this year and came only days after Typhoon Usagi killed at least 25 people in Guangdong province.
Authorities told the Xinhua news agency that about 574,000 people had been evacuated to safer areas in advance of Fitow’s arrival, and about 35,800 vessels had returned to harbor for shelter.
Authorities suspended bullet train services in several cities in Zhejiang, Fujian and Jiangxi provinces.
Zhejiang’s Wenzhou airport cancelled 27 flights due to severe conditions.
