13 people have been killed while 16 others missing in a landslide that was triggered by Typhoon Lekima in eastern China, the country’s official TV station said Saturday.

According to CCTV said the disaster also resulted in hundreds of inbound and outbound flights being canceled and over one million people evacuated.

Typhoon Lekima landed earlier in the east of Zhejiang province in China with winds of up to 187 kilometers per hour.

China’s weather bureau Saturday issued an orange alert, the second highest after withdrawing a red alert Friday forcing flights to be canceled in Taiwan and business activity closed.

The incident occurred about 130 kilometers north of Wenzhou city when a natural dam collapsed after the landslide, Chinese official TV said.

So far 250,000 residents of Shanghai and 800,000 residents in Zhejiang province have been displaced by the typhoon Lekima, while 2.72 million households in Zhejiang lost power shortage due to strong winds and heavy rains.

The hurricane also forced Shanghai Disneyland to close to avoid further loss of lives.

Typhoon Lekima is expected to arrive in Jiangsu province early morning on Sunday and change direction to the Yellow Sea before moving north and landing again in Shandong province, Chinese TV said.
