Typhoon, tides push Shanghai river water above warning level

Beijing, Sep 18 (IANS) Typhoon Malakas and tides have pushed the water level of Huangpu river in Shanghai above the warning level, authorities said on Sunday.

Malakas, the 16th typhoon in 2016, entered East China Sea on Saturday afternoon, the National Marine Environmental Forecasting Centre said.

According to statistics by Shanghai Flood Risk Information Centre, water levels at the sections of Wusongkou, Suzhouhe and Mishidu all exceeded the warning level, Xinhua news agency reported.

Rising water levels forced local authorities to launch emergency response measures and shut all tidal gates.

Typhoon Malakas came after typhoon Meranti, which killed at least 28 persons and 15 others were reported missing in China on Thursday.
