Typhoon Haima made a second landfall in southeastern China on Friday after leaving at least 13 dead in the northern Philippines.

Haima, referred to as Lawin in the Philippines, barreled into southeastern China during the midday hours of Friday, local time, with its strength equivalent to a Category 1 hurricane.

The eye of the storm came ashore near Shanwei in eastern Guangdong, about 105 miles east of Hong Kong’s International Airport.

Haima has since weakened below typhoon status and will further weaken to a tropical rainstorm by Saturday afternoon.
