Trains, flights canceled

NO trains will run on the Shanghai-Xiamen and Shanghai-Fuzhou routes today after services were canceled ahead of the arrival of Typhoon Soulik.

A total of 62 bullet train services, covering coastal areas in southeast China, have been canceled, rail authorities said.

China Eastern Airlines canceled two return flights to Taiwan from Shanghai's Pudong International Airport and one from Hongqiao International Airport because of Soulik's influence. China Southern Airlines canceled one return flight from Pudong to the island.

Airport operators are reminding passengers to check flight updates as more flights could be changed or canceled.

Shanghai is not in the core area affected by Soulik and it is expected to brush past the city over the weekend, but it will bring cooler temperatures, strong winds and showers in its wake, said the weather bureau.

City forecasters said any temporary structures, such as signboards, should be securely fastened and plant pots removed from balconies.

Flood control authorities said patrols have been strengthened at construction sites, traffic underpasses, Metro stations and tunnels to prevent potential leaks. More than 300 workers are on standby to drain water and people living on construction sites, makeshift housing and seawall regions will be evacuated if necessary, officials said.
