  • City prepares for super typhoon

The State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters on Wednesday issued a circular to seven provinces including Zhejiang, Fujian, Jiangsu and Shanghai Municipality, telling authorities to prepare to be prepared and have emergency response systems in place to be deployed.

China's weather bureau said Lekima was expected to have weakened by the time it made landfall.

The CEOC report also stated that 3,451 households in New Taipei, Hsinchu County, Miaoli County, Taichung and Nantou County were still left without electricity due to Lekima as of 2 p.m. Friday, with fix work ongoing.

Meteorologists suggest potentially affected areas strengthen safety inspections of coastal dikes, rivers and lakes and be prepared to prevent urban floods, landslides and other geological disasters.

China's National Meteorological Administration forecasts Lekima, which it classifies as a super typhoon, to make landfall in Zhejiang province south of Shanghai, before turning north toward the city.

Further east, Typhoon Krosa is spreading heavy rain across the Northern Mariana Islands and Guam.

Huge waves beat against the sea shore as Typhoon Lekima approaches in Shitang Township of Wenling City, east China's Zhejiang Province, Aug. 9, 2019.

Jiangsu has issued warnings to brace for strong winds, rainstorms and temperature drops since Friday.

Taiwan's Central Emergency Operation Center reported at least one death and four injuries in the wake of the storm.
