That department issued the orange alert, the second highest in a four-tier warning system, and detailed that the phenomenon is gaining strength as it moves northwest at 15 kilometers per hour, it must make landfall between Sunday and Monday and it will affect, to a greater extent, the demarcations of Shanghai, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Anhui, Shanxi, Shaanxi and Taiwan.

However, rainfalls will extend to areas of Henan such as the cities of Anyang, Jiaozuo and Nanyang that suffer major floods due to the downpours reported since Saturday, July 17.

Henan has so far accounted for at least 33 dead, eight missing, more than three million victims and direct economic losses of around 1.2 billion yuan (188.6 million dollars).

The Chinese Government mobilized thousands of rescuers, health workers and military units to Henan to support contingency works and infrastructure repair.
