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.
Meanwhile, the strength of Tropical Storm (13W) has remained steady, containing winds of 50 mph. This system was centered about 685 miles north-northwest of Wake Island. This storm system will track to the north-northwest over the next few days, remaining well to the east of Japan. As a result, this system will have little or no impact on land.
