Heavy downpours caused by Typhoon Trami have left two people dead and affected nearly 200,000 in China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, the authorities said Monday.

As of 5 p.m. Sunday, the rainfall that started from Thursday has affected 197,600 people in nine cities and 23 counties in Guangxi, reported Xinhua citing the regional civil affairs authority.

Two people, one from Luchuan county and the other from Napo county, were killed while more than 4,400 people were relocated.

Rainstorms also toppled 348 households and seriously damaged another 451 households in Guangxi.

Typhoon Trami was the 12th typhoon to hit China this year. Rainstorms brought by the typhoon have also swept Zhejiang and Fujian provinces, affecting 1.4 million people and forcing the relocation of 351,000, China's civil affairs ministry said Friday.
