Typhoon Soulik: China coastline battered with waves

Strong winds are lashing coastal areas in China where some 300,000 people have been left their homes as Typhoon Soulik moves inland, reports say.

In the coastal provinces of Fujian and Zhejiang, flights and train services were cancelled and fishing boats called back to shore.

Waves as high as 10m (32ft) hit Yuhuan County in Zhejiang Province and authorities have warned residents to stay away from the dangerous coastline.
