NANCHANG, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- More than 330,000 people in east China's Jiangxi Province have been affected by typhoon Haikui, local authorities said Friday.

Typhoon-triggered torrential rainstorms have battered Jiangxi since the typhoon made landfall early Wednesday morning in east China's Zhejiang Province, according to the provincial flood control and drought relief headquarters.

As of 5 p.m. Friday, over 33,780 residents had been relocated in the province.

The water level of Poyang Lake, the country's largest freshwater lake, stood at 19.2 meters, 0.20 meter over the alert level and 2.25 meters higher than the average annual level.

The city of Jingdezhen, which was hit hard by heavy rains, received 328 mm of rain, the headquarters said, adding that 182,440 people were affected in the city.

No casualties have been reported in Jiangxi.

Haikui, the 11th typhoon of the year, was the third typhoon to wallop China's eastern coast in a week, after storms Saola and Damrey hit the region over the weekend.

It has left six people dead and forced more than 2.17 million people to be relocated in four provincial-level regions in eastern China, the Ministry of Civil Affairs said Friday.
