Storyline


China is braced for the upcoming Typhoon Talim and Typhoon Doksuri, the 18th and 19th typhoon this year.

China's National Meteorological Center (NMC) Thursday morning continued its orange alert for Typhoon Talim, which is moving northwest at a speed of 10 km per hour.

It’s anticipated to move north into waters near east China’s Zhejiang Province on Thursday night, then turn northeast and may make a landfall in the western coastal area of Kyushu, Japan on Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

Typhoon Doksuri has intensified to a strong tropical storm early Thursday morning, moving northeast at a speed of 20 km per hour. It’s expected to skip south waters of Hainan Province and may land in north Vietnam on Friday evening.

As the center of Talim is approaching China, the National Marine Environmental Forecasting Center lifted the alert for wave to the highest level and maintained the blue alert for storm surge at 22:00 on Wednesday.

At the same time, the State Oceanic Administration also raised the emergency response to the highest level.

Areas likely to be hit by the storms have taken precautions against the dual typhoons.

In Xiangshan County, Zhejiang Province’s Ningbo City, the local marine department enhanced the inspections of fishing vessels at port.

"As typhoons are approaching, we've shifted our focus from preparation for fishing festival to disaster prevention, so that in case of dragging, we can make rapid response," said Xu Jintao, officer of marine and fishery administrative law enforcement brigade in Xiangshan.

The local power supply company also organized staff members to check power supply facilities in the coastal areas in Xiangshan.

In east China’s Fujian Province, a total of 20,000 fishing vessels have returned to harbors with their personnel evacuated to the safety by 10:00 on Wednesday.

To respond to the dual typhoons, Shanghai Railway Bureau announced Wednesday the suspension of 391 train services from Wednesday to Saturday.

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