Typhoon Ma-on sweeps Pearl River Delta
Typhoon Ma-on, the ninth this year, made landfall in the coastal area of Diantai county of Guangdong province on Thursday morning, with a speed of 119 kilometers per hour, bringing heavy rainfall — especially in the province's western area.
Before landfall, several sections of expressways in Maoming and nearby Yangjiang were closed, local traffic police said.
After landfall, Ma-on moved northwest at a speed of about 25 kilometers per hour, passing through Maoming. It was expected to enter the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region on Thursday afternoon, with winds decreasing.
Many railway services resumed on Thursday morning, as the typhoon waned in the Pearl River Delta, according to Guangzhou Railway Group.
Entry and exit services at Hengqing Port in Zhuhai resumed after the typhoon passed.
