Typhoon heads for Vietnam after China


Having killed at least 43 people in the Philippines, Typhoon Nesat has arrived in southern China.

The authorities here have had plenty of warning. An estimated 300,000 people have been evacuated from their homes in Hainan island.

Plane and ferry connections have been suspended.

The typhoon has caused some of the worst flooding in decades, but the damage seems to be mainly superficial, although expensive. The bill in the Philippines is estimated at around 91 million dollars, or 67 million euros.

30 people are still unaccounted for in the Philippines. And there is more bad news. the authorities are warning another storm is set to strike.

Meanwhile, thousands of people have taken refuge in storm shelters in Vietnam, after warnings that the typhoon is heading their way.
