As a result of torrential rains brought by the typhoon, the water level in 13 large and 39 medium-sized reservoirs exceeds the maximum level, posing a risk of breaking dams and flooding.
Meanwhile, the coastal provinces of China expect the approach of Danas, the 24th typhoon this year, and therefore an ‘orange’ level of hazard has been declared in the coastal areas. Over the next three days, this typhoon will continue to shift to the north and north-east.
