According to provincial emergency management department, in Shandong, Lekima has left five people dead and seven missing.

Numerous earlier deaths occurred when a natural dam collapsed in Zhejiang after a deluge of 160 mm (6.2 inches) of rain within three hours.

Luo Yuezhen, a Zhejiang-based meteorologist told state news agency Xinhua that the typhoon was "like a horse with an extremely fierce temper". It made a second landing at 8:50 p.m. Sunday on the coast of Qingdao in Shandong Province. "Sustained downpours pushed a lot of rivers to very risky levels", he said. They stacked sandbags, drained muddy water off the streets and rode on inflatable boats to evacuate residents who lived in the 1,600-year-old town of Linhai, where streets were completely submerged on Saturday.

"I was waiting for death and was so lucky to have been saved, but it's saddening to learn that so many of my folks have died", said Pan.
