凤凰台风逼近中国东部 Typhoon Fung-Wong Heads for Eastern China

28 July, 2008

中国在浙江省和福建省为应对预计星期一晚或星期二早登陆的凤凰台风疏散了至少50万人。中国国家媒体说,这两个省的当局召回了7万8千艘出海的渔船,并取消了福州国际机场的航班。

凤凰台湾星期一早些时候袭击了台湾东部,造成至少一人死亡。在另一场造成至少19人死亡的风暴过去的一个星期之后,凤凰台风又席卷台湾,在部分地区降下70公分的雨水。这场风暴以时速160公里的狂扫台湾,当局下令学校、办公楼以及股市关闭。

China has evacuated at least 500-thousand people in the eastern provinces of Zhejiang and Fujian in preparation for the arrival of Typhoon Fung-Wong, expected later today (Monday) or early Tuesday. State media said authorities recalled some 78-thousand fishing boats in the two provinces and canceled flights at Fuzhou International Airport.

Fung-Wong struck eastern Taiwan earlier today (Monday), killing at least one person. A week after another storm killed at least 19 people, Fung-Wong (phoenix) swept across the island, dumping 70 centimeters of rain in some areas. Authorities ordered schools, offices and the stock exchange closed as the storm lashed Taiwan with winds of up to 160 kilometers per hour.
