Yellow alert renewed ahead of Hagupit

China’s national observatory yesterday renewed a yellow alert for Typhoon Hagupit, which is expected to bring gales and torrential rains to south China.

Hagupit, the fourth typhoon this year, was observed at waters 370 kilometers southeast of Cangnan County in east China’s Zhejiang Province at 10am yesterday, with a maximum wind force of 28 meters per second in the center, the National Meteorological Center said.

The NMC forecast that the typhoon would move northwest at a speed of 20 to 25 kilometers per hour before making landfall on the coastline between Zhejiang and Fujian yesterday evening or early today.

According to the NMC, downpours are expected to lash parts of Zhejiang, Fujian and Taiwan, with some areas receiving up to 200 millimeters of rainfall.

The NMC has advised preparations for emergency response, timely relocation of people living in dangerous places, and ships returning to harbors. China has a four-tier color-coded weather warning system, with red representing the most severe weather, followed by orange, yellow and blue.
