Typhoons Talim and Doksuri, the 18th and 19th so far this year, have brought rainstorms to cities in south China and east China on Thursday.

Typhoon Doksuri uprooted trees and churned the sea tide up to four to five meters off the coast of the city of Sansha in south China's island province of Hainan.

Residents living in the coastal area were relocated to safer places before the arrival of the Typhoon.

"We've evacuated all the people here, providing them with daily supplies," said Zhao Heng, deputy director of the Yongxing Community Committee of Sansha City.

Typhoon Talim raised the tide more than 10 meters high in Yuhuan, east China's Zhejiang Province.

The city has launched an emergency response and evacuated people in areas likely to be affected before the arrival of the typhoon.

Fishermen in the Nantang Dongshan port in Yueqing City, east China's Zhejiang Province, are busy reinforcing fishing rafts ahead of Typhoon Talim.

China's National Meteorological Center (NMC) Thursday morning maintained its orange alert against Typhoon Talim.

The center predicted that the typhoon will move northward into waters near the coasts of east China’s Zhejiang Province on Thursday night before turning northeastward and make 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 northeastward at a speed of 20 km per hour.

It's expected to skip waters off the southern coasts of Hainan Province to land in northern Vietnam on Friday evening.
