Storyline


Typhoon Maria lashed east China's Fujian Province with heavy gales and rain, after making landfall on Wednesday morning.

The eighth typhoon this year, Maria made landfall at 09:10 Wednesday in Lianjiang County, Fujian Province, with gales of up to 42 meters per second near the storm's eye, according to local meteorological authorities. It is the strongest typhoon of this year so far.

Strong gales uprooted many trees, damaged fishing boats and caused havoc on roads in Lianjiang, a fishing county. More than 8,000 residents have been evacuated from the area.

In Luoyuan County of Fuzhou City, eight to nine meter high waves pounded the shoreline. The seawater flooded coastal villages, and a total of 10,477 residents have been evacuated.

Strong gales swept across downtown Ningde City, with maximum winds reaching nearly 30 meters per second, uprooting and damaging nearly 2,000 trees in the city proper.

In Shacheng Town of Fuding City, 150 kilometers away from the site where the typhoon made landfall, the maximum wind speed reached 42 meters per second. Heavy rain and strong tides triggered by the typhoon caused the seawater to surge and reach the road surface. Huge waves washed away some seaside infrastructure onto roads and destroyed many nearby houses.

Maria weakened to a severe tropical storm on Wednesday at noon, and is forecast to cross north Fujian, before entering neighboring Jiangxi Province later in the evening and weakening to a tropical depression.
