The most powerful typhoon to hit the southern Chinese region in more than half a century left at least 12 dead as a sudden deluge swamped the gambling hub of Macau, submerging streets and stranding residents.Macau said Thursday eight people were killed in the former Portuguese colony, including two men found overnight in a parking garage. Coutinho said the flooding was at its worst in the older parts of the city, where narrow lanes date back from Macau's time as a Portuguese colony for more than four centuries.China's official Xinhua News Agency said four more people were killed in the neighboring province of Guangdong and one person remains missing. Typhoon Hato roared into the area Wednesday with winds of up to 160 kilometers (99 miles) per hour.
