NANCHANG, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- More than 130,000 people have been affected and about 10,000 residents have been relocated in east China's Jiangxi Province as a result of typhoon Haikui, local authorities said Friday.

More than 130,000 people have been affected and about 10,000 residents have been relocated in east China's Jiangxi Province as a result of typhoon Haikui, local authorities said Friday.

Typhoon-triggered torrential rainstorms have battered the province, forcing the relocation of 13,359 people after the typhoon made landfall early Wednesday morning in east China's Zhejiang Province, according to the provincial flood control and drought relief headquarters.

The city of Jingdezhen, which was hit hard by the heavy rains, received 220 mm of rain, the headquarters said.

The provincial meteorological station issued an orange alert for the storm at 8:40 a.m., as more rains will pelt the province Friday.

Chinese meteorological authorities use a four-tier color-coded weather warning system, with red being the most severe, followed by orange, yellow and blue.

More than 130,000 people have been affected and about 10,000 residents have been relocated in east China's Jiangxi Province as a result of typhoon Haikui, local authorities said Friday.

As the typhoon is moving westward, 12 trains running on the Wangan Railway, a railway line connecting east China's Anhui Province and neighboring Jiangxi Province, have been stranded by rain-triggered floods, said the Nanchang Railway Bureau. Repair work is under way.

No casualties have been reported in Jiangxi so far.
