Typhoon Molave to bring heavy rains to S China

TYPHOON Molave would bring heavy rains to the country's southern and southwestern regions, said China Meteorological Administration (CMA) today.

The administration warned in a note on its website that that Molave would bring downpour to Guangdong Province, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and Yunnan Province. Guangdong, in particular, embraced heavy rains last night.

Molave landed at Nanao town in Shenzhen City of Guangdong at 0:50 am (Beijing Time) today, packing winds up to 145 km per hour in its eye.

CMA issued an "orange alert" at 6:00 am today that the typhoon has weakened to strong tropical storm after landing in Shenzhen. It located at 22.7 degrees north and 113.7 degrees east at 5:00 am.

The State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters dispatched five emergency task forces yesterday to Sichuan, Heilongjiang, Guangdong and Fujian provinces to help prepare for the typhone and possible ensuing flooding.
