Typhoon Morakot hits China coast


Typhoon Morakot has hit the coastal areas of the Chinese mainland, where around a million people have been moved to safer areas.

The typhoon dumped nearly 2m of rain in parts of Taiwan over the course of 24 hours - and it is not the only storm causing problems for China's coastal regions.

Helen Fawkes reports.
