Powerful typhoon Chan-hom has made landfall along the coast of China’s eastern Zhejiang province. Almost one million people have been evacuated from coastal areas in anticipation of the typhoon carrying wind speeds of 173km/h. Flooding and landslides are expected. Chan-hom first hit Zhejiang province on an island near the city of Ningbo at around 16:40 (08:40GMT), the National Meteorological Agency said. There was no immediate report of damage or casualties. Dozens of flights have been cancelled and some 100 train services were also cancelled. Chinese television showed footage of coastal region’s being battered by torrential rain as the typhoon neared.
