China reports 7 dead, 4 missing from typhoon

world Updated: Sep 17, 2009 08:28 IST

Chinese state media says seven people were killed and four others are missing after Typhoon Koppu roared into the southern province of Guangdong earlier this week. The

Xinhua News Agency

says in a brief report on Thursday that four of the dead were killed in a landslide brought on by torrential rains. Details about the other deaths were not given and a forecaster reached by phone at the provincial weather bureau said the storm had cleared.

Koppu, the 15th typhoon to strike China this year, brought heavy rains to western China and northern parts of Southeast Asia and helped relieve drought conditions in parts of Guangdong.
