Tropical storm JulietteThe Hawaii of China which is the Chinese island Hainan, is now in the direct path of the
monster typhoon Haiyan, that just destroyed many parts of the Philippines.

 

The Chinese State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters has asked provinces of Hainan and Guangdong as well as Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region to keep a close eye on Haiyan and upgrade their precautions.

 

China has issued an orange alert, the second-highest warning in its weather system as Typhoon Haiyan hits the Chinese coast.

 

Haiyan, the 30th and strongest typhoon to hit China this year, arrived at 6 pm yesterday at the eastern area of South China Sea, 370 km to the southeast of Sansha city, Hainan, after having wreaked havoc in the Philippines.

 

It will move northwestward at a speed of 30-35 km per hour, the headquarters said.

 

The central and southern parts of Hainan and Sansha city are expected to be hit by downpours as Typhoon Haiyan approaches, the headquarters said.

 

All fishing boats were urged to return to ports by noon yesterday.

 

As of last night, most had returned, with a few still on their way back, state-run Xinhua news agency reported today.
