Shanghai Disneyland closed Monday as typhoon In-Fa affected the eastern part of the country with heavy rain and strong winds Sunday. 

The storm hit as central China was still reeling from flooding that killed at least 63, cut off power and forced the evacuation of more than 1 million people, state broadcaster CCTV reported, citing the China Meteorological Administration.

Shanghai, China's biggest city, and neighboring coastal regions suspended all flights. The government announced it would extend a suspension of railway services in and out of the city through midday Monday, CCTV said.

Newsweek Beijing bureau chief Melinda Liu said "the problem with this typhoon is not only that it's wreaking economic havoc in some key parts in China but also that it comes at a very delicate time."

Incessant downpours dumped a year's worth of rain in just three days last week in the central province of Henan, where 13 people drowned in the rain-filled Zhengzhou subway route.

Some passengers filmed desperate goodbye videos for loved ones while they stood in chest-high water, according to NPR.

"For the first time in my life, I touched a dead body,"NPR quoted a 15-year-old survivor in a self-recorded video after the tragedy.

Millions of others have been affected by the flooding, with some trapped without water or food for days. According to estimates, China's economic losses have run into billions of dollars.

China's weather bureau said after landfall In-Fa would weaken but could continue to linger over a wide area of eastern China for days with heavy rainfall, possibly to areas still recovering from last week's freak flooding, Agence France-Presse said.

Annual summer flooding is not unusual in China, although this season's deluge raises a number of questions, with climate change being among the major issues of concern.

Meanwhile, scientists said cities like Zhengzhou and Xinxiang might need to prepare for more floods.
