China’s national observatory on Friday renewed a red alert for typhoon Saola and Haikui, which are expected to bring gales and heavy rains to the country’s southern coastal regions.

Typhoon Saola is the ninth typhoon in 2023, moving in northwesterly and westerly directions at 10-15 kilometres per hour, according to the National Meteorological Centre (NMC).

It will likely make landfall on the coast within an area stretching from Huidong to Taishan in China’s southern Guangdong Province from Friday evening to Saturday morning.

It may move southwestward from the coastal areas near the middle parts of Guangdong, the NMC said.

Typhoon Haikui, the 11th typhoon of this year, is moving northwesterly at 15-20 kilometres per hour and gradually approaching the coastal areas near eastern China.

It may pass through Taiwan Island and enter the Taiwan Strait before approaching the coast of Fujian around Sunday, according to the NMC.
