The reporter was informed on the evening of the 8th that the Office of Flood and Drought Management had started the anti-typhoon IV-class emergency response at 18:00 on the 8th, and issued the “Notice on the Preparation Work for the Defense of No. 8 Typhoon (Maria), to deploy the defense work. The Office of Flood and Drought Management requires departments at all levels to strengthen monitoring, forecasting, analysis, and discussion, to implement various preventive measures and strengthen the safety management of water conservancy projects.


This year's No. 8 typhoon “Malia” gradually moved to the north-west direction since its formation and quickly increased to a super typhoon level. By 20:00 on the 8th, its center was located at 20.5 degrees north latitude, 136.6 degrees east longitude, and its maximum power near the center was 17 scale (58 meters / sec).


The Provincial Meteorological Observatory issued a typhoon message, forecasting that “Maria” is moving northwest at a speed of about 30 kilometers per hour. It is likely to land or wipe the northeastern part of Taiwan on the morning of the 11th, and to land in the middle of Fujian and in the south coast of Zhejiang during the daytime on the 11th. Affected by this, it is expected that the winds on the central and southern parts of the East China Sea will gradually increase from the night of the 9th, and the maximum wind force in the coastal areas of South Zhejiang on the 11th will reach 11 to 13 scale. At that time, there will be heavy rain and rainstorm in southern Zhejiang and the coastal areas.


In addition, under the influence of the subtropical high pressure gradually strengthening and moving westward, on the 9th and 10th, the province is dominated by sunny and hot weather, and the highest temperature in most areas can reach 35 to 37 °C. With the help of sunny weather, the season of the plum rain will finish in this province on the 9th. This year, Zhejiang Province entered the plum rain season on June 20th, which was significantly delayed compared with that in the previous years. This short plum rain season lasted only 19 days. At the same time, the average plum rainfall in the province during this rainy season was 229 mm, which was less than the average annual plum rainfall.


The meteorological department said that there are still some uncertainties about the moving path of the current “Malia”. All localities and relevant departments should pay close attention to the latest typhoon forecasting and warning information issued by the local meteorological observatory. The Southern Zhejiang and the coastal areas should pay attention to the prevention of the secondary disasters from the heavy precipitation to be brought by the typhoon.
