In our news wrap Monday, the death toll from a weekend typhoon in eastern China has risen to 45 people. Rescue workers are still evacuating residents stranded in buildings after their streets were submerged by floodwaters. Also, in southern India, torrential rain and mudslides have killed nearly 100 people and displaced 400,000 others. Flooded roads meant people had to evacuate by boat.
