Typhoon Bavi Slams Northeastern China for the First Time Since 1964
On the morning of Aug. 27, Typhoon Bavi made landfall in an area near the China-North Korea border, damaging homes and buildings, flooded roads, and toppling utility poles in North Korea.
China’s coastal city of Dalian located in Liaoning Province suspended all business and school operations, as well as train services.
Bavi packed maximum winds of 82 miles per hour near the eye of the storm. It was the strongest storm to develop in the Yellow Sea in the past 70 years.
Even before the arrival of Bavi, heavy rainstorms had already flooded Liaoning’s capital city of Shenyang on Aug. 24 and the coastal city of Qingdao in Shandong Province on Aug. 26. The city’s airport runways were flooded and flights had to land on runways that were covered in several inches of water.
