Chinese authorities face a huge clear up in the eastern province of Fujian after Typhoon Dujuan battered the coastal region.
Hundreds of boats have been called back to shore and tourist attractions closed.
Dujuan hit China after causing death and severe devastation in Taiwan.
At its height winds reached speeds of 120 km an hour.
The nearby industrial powerhouse of Zhejiang was hit by towering waves and high gales.
The Fujian weather service says the storm has now lost strength, but rains are expected to continue.
