Storyline


China's National Meteorological Center (NMC)renewed its orange alert on for the approaching Typhoon Talim Wednesday.

The center raised the alert for Talim from blue to orange on 18:00 Tuesday

The eye of Talim, this year's 18th typhoon in the region, was above the northwestern Pacific Ocean, 760 kilometers southeast of Xiangshang County of east China's Zhejiang Province at 05:00 Wednesday.

The NMC forecast that Talim would move northwest at a speed of 20 kilometers per hour. It warned that Talim would grow stronger and could escalate to a super typhoon with winds up to 52 meters per second, expecting it to land in the central and north coastal regions of Zhejiang between Thursday night to Friday morning, or would move north in waters near Zhejiang Friday and then turn northeast.

China has a four-tier color-coded system for severe weather, with red being the most serious, followed by orange, yellow and blue.

From 08:00 Wednesday to 08:00 Thursday, Talim will bring gales to southeastern coastal areas, most areas of the East China Sea, waters in the Taiwan Strait and east of Taiwan.

The NMC also warned of heavy rains and downpours in northern Taiwan, eastern Zhejiang and central Fujian.

Zhejiang has been actively preparing for the Typhoon since Tuesday. Relevant department in Taizhou City has been calling all fishing vessels back to ports and helping fishermen to reinforce equipment in fish farms in its coastal regions.

"The entire city has over 5,200 fishing vessels. So far close to 3,000 have already returned to ports according to our statistics. We are informing the rest 2,000 vessels one by one to let them speed up returning to ports," said He Xianqing, an official of Taizhou's Ocean and Fisheries Bureau.
