Typhoon Trami is the 12th typhoon to hit China this year. Friday, August 23, 2013, the typhoon hit land in eastern China, bringing huge surges of water onshore.

The fast-rising tide was funneled into a river, which formed an upstream wave that hit Haining City.

The “tidal river bore” was around 20 meters (22 yards) tall and caused several injuries as the protective sea wall gave way under the impact of the water.
