Flash floods kill seven in Algeria
Algiers (AFP) Oct 09, 2013 - Flash floods killed seven people in Algeria on Wednesday, five of them in a normally arid region bordering the Sahara, emergency services said.

Two rivers burst their banks in Djelfa, 330 kilometres (205 miles), south of Algiers, on the escarpment where the High Plateaus of the centre give way to the deserts of the south, the APS news agency reported.

Five bodies were recovered after two vehicles were swept away, it quoted emergency services as saying.

The other two deaths came in an area of Msila province 230 kilometres (145 miles) southeast of the capital, where the Soubella river burst its banks, APS said.

Several dozen families were forced to flee homes along the river and take refuge in a local school.

Ten people have died after a typhoon slammed into China's east coast, including a family of three who were all killed by electric shocks, state media reported Wednesday.

Five others are still missing after Typhoon Fitow brought heavy rains to Zhejiang province, Xinhua news agency reported, citing local authorities.

Fitow made landfall early Monday, affecting about seven million people in 11 cities in Zhejiang, with houses torn down and grain flooded, Xinhua reported.

In Wenzhou city, the storm claimed at least 10 lives -- eight of whom died of electric shocks, including the three family members, the agency reported late Wednesday, citing a statement from the local government.

Two others died after their car plunged into a river, the statement reportedly said.

Parts of Zhejiang, which neighbours the commercial hub Shanghai, saw nearly 29 centimetres (11 inches) of rain over 17 hours from Sunday to Monday, the official China News Service said.

On Wednesday, Xinhua said the rain had flooded roads and houses, causing river breaches and power failures, with more than 250,000 people still without power that morning.
