Shanghai’s Yangshan Port halts operations as typhoon intensifies

Shanghai’s largest container port, Yangshan, has suspended terminal operations as Typhoon Hinnamnor approaches the east China coast, state media outlet CCTV reported, citing the local maritime authority.

The agency has stepped up its emergency response as it prepares measures against Hinnamnor, which has intensified into a super typhoon with maximum winds of 52 meters per second, according to the China Meteorological Administration.

The cities of Ningbo and Zhoushan in nearby Zhejiang province will close schools because of the typhoon on Monday, according to local governments.

Ningbo has also activated its highest emergency level, CCTV said.

The typhoon is heading north toward South Korea and western Japan.

Based on its current trajectory, Hinnamnor is unlikely to land in Zhejiang or nearby areas, CCTV said, citing the latest forecast, although China’s east coast is likely to be battered by strong winds and rain over the next three days.

The typhoon affected airline arrivals and departures in nearby Japan’s Okinawa Prefecture.

Japan Airlines said it had canceled 78 flights so far Sunday, affecting 3,930 passengers, while ANA Holdings halted 27 flights, affecting 1,280 people.

Taiwan’s Central Weather Bureau also warned of extremely heavy rain in some areas and that ships sailing in the north of the island should be on their guard.
