China’s national observatory has issued a renewed red alert for Typhoons Saola and Haikui, warning of their imminent arrival and the potential for strong winds and heavy rainfall in the country’s southern coastal regions.
According to the National Meteorological Center (NMC), Typhoon Saola, the ninth typhoon of the year, is currently moving in northwesterly and westerly directions at a speed of 10-15 kilometers per hour. It is anticipated to make landfall on the southern coast, possibly ranging from Huidong to Taishan in Guangdong Province, between Friday evening and Saturday morning.
Meanwhile, Typhoon Haikui, the 11th typhoon of the year, is heading in a northwesterly direction at a speed of 15-20 kilometers per hour. The storm is gradually approaching the eastern coastal areas of China and may traverse Taiwan Island before entering the Taiwan Strait and reaching the coast of Fujian around Sunday.
These warnings serve as a precautionary measure to prepare the affected regions and ensure the safety of residents in the wake of the approaching typhoons.
