On Tuesday evening, EDT, Typhoon Haikui (12W) made landfall approximately 155 miles south of Shanghai, China.
Haikui had maximum sustained winds near 60 mph at time of landfall.
Due to the slow-moving nature of Haikui, rainfall amounts in excess of 10 inches are likely in coastal areas across Zhejiang and northern Fujian provinces. If the storm system stalls over the area, total rainfall from the storm could top 20 inches in some areas.
Maximum significant wave height was reported at 25 feet, according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center.
The heavy rain will result in significant flooding creating life-threatening situations across the region. In addition, damaging winds are possible.
