Updated: 2021- 07- 26

China on Friday raised its emergency response for flood and typhoon control from level IV to level III, as Typhoon In-Fa approaches the country's eastern coastal areas and heads for landfall as a strong typhoon.

Typhoon In-Fa, the sixth one this year, is expected to make landfall in the coastal areas of the northern part of Zhejiang Province and the northern part of Fujian Province during the daytime on Sunday, the Ministry of Emergency Management said.

The State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters has dispatched working teams to Zhejiang and Shanghai to assist and guide typhoon prevention and response work.

Chinese authorities on Friday also issued circulars to local bureaus for flood control and drought relief in Zhejiang, Shanghai, Fujian, Jiangsu, Jiangxi and Anhui to deploy prevention work for Typhoon In-Fa.
