China upgrades emergency response as Typhoon Talim approaches

Beijing, July 17 (BNA): Talim continued to gain power after becoming a typhoon early Monday and is set to be the first to make landfall in China this year, prompting authorities to cancel flights, suspend high-speed trains and order the people. to stay at home.

The China Meteorological Administration said the typhoon is expected to intensify to “severe” by the time it makes landfall at night along the southern coast between Guangdong and Hainan, Reuters reported.

The national forecaster urged authorities in Guangdong and Hainan to prepare to respond to the typhoon.

Authorities in Hainan have asked ships in nearby waters to return to ports, and ferry services between Hainan and Guangdong were suspended early Sunday.
