"At least 54 people have died in China because of flooding and landslides triggered by Typhoon Talim.
About 40 died in the province of Anhui when Talim made landfall on Thursday, and 14 died in the city of Wenzhou, China's Xinhua news agency reported.
Some 400,000 people were affected by the storm, which caused an estimated $877m (�476m) worth of damage.
The weakening storm hit China on Thursday after killing two people and injuring dozens in Taiwan.
By Saturday Talim had weakened to a tropical storm as it moved further inland. "
