8 August 2012 -Shanghai braces for Typhoon Haikui 08-Aug-2012

A typhoon warning left Shanghai and its vast metropolitan area hunkering down as of Tuesday, as it prompted companies to release employees early, the government to evacuate seaside residents, close parks and warn shipping companies.

Officers evacuated residents from low-lying areas in Zhoushan, south of shanghai Tuesday.

Typhoon Haikui is headed toward the manufacturing province of Zhejiang, just south of Shanghai. It is expected to be nearest to Shanghai late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

According to Chinese Meteorological Administration, the storms are packing high winds and intensifying as it nears the coast. The government in Shanghai, has raised an alert to the second-highest level of orange, and is ordering more than 200,000 people away from their homes to safe areas. The city ‘s two main airports has cancelled more than 150 flights and shipping ports had suspended operations.

Shanghai port has been closed since 6th August and according to weather forecast and typhoon development trends, it will likely be closed for the next 3-4 days. It is estimated that port activities will not resume until 11th August.

Businesses are bracing for possible closure on Wednesday in the commercial hub. In a statement, the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai said it planned to close its office on Wednesday due to the approaching storm.

Though the South China Sea sees numerous typhoons each year—including two in the past week—Shanghai rarely gets hit as hard as other points along China's east coast, like Hong Kong.

Local reports on Tuesday warned Haikui potentially posed the biggest threat to Shanghai since 2005, when state media said back-to-back typhoons in late summer killed at least 15 in Shanghai and more in Zhejiang.
