China activated a level-IV emergency response on Sunday as
Muifa, the 12th typhoon this year, is moving closer to the
country's eastern coastal areas, Trend reports citing Xinhua .
The typhoon is forecast to move into the East China Sea on
Monday. From Monday to Friday, heavy rainfalls and rainstorms are
likely to hit areas including parts of Zhejiang, Shanghai, Jiangsu
and Shandong, said the Ministry of Emergency Management (MEM).
The State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters has
dispatched two working teams to east China's Jiangsu and Zhejiang

Efforts should be made to strengthen monitoring and guard
against the typhoon-triggered disasters, the headquarters said,
while suggesting that ships should take shelter in harbors and
offshore workers come ashore.
