More than 3,600 homes in southern China have been destroyed by floods resulting from a now fading tropical storm, Chinese state media has reported.
The floods in Guangdong province have affected about 1.2 million people and caused an estimated 1.3bn yuan ($171m) of damage, Xinhua news agency said.
The rain was caused by Tropical Storm Pabuk, which hit Hong Kong on Friday, disrupting transport and business.
China has seen months of bad weather, affecting some five million people.
Heavy rain in and around the city of Dandong, in the north-eastern province of Liaoning, sparked fears of landslides, prompting the evacuation of more than 1,100 people.
Mines operating in the surrounding area were also ordered to close because of the bad weather, which looks set to continue all week, Xinhua said.
However, rain from Pabuk brought relief to south-eastern coastal areas which have been enduring a long-running drought.
The tropical storm caused havoc in Hong Kong on Friday, forcing the closure of shops, schools, public buildings and ferry services.
Deadly flooding is an annual problem in China, with millions of people in central and southern parts of the country living on reclaimed farmland in the flood plains of rivers.
Last year some 2,704 people died in flooding and typhoons in China, according to the country's Meteorological Administration.
But experts are warning that global warming will fuel more intense and frequent storms.
