China News Service, August 22. According to the website of the Central Meteorological Observatory, the long-silent Northwest Pacific Ocean generated two typhoons one after another today, namely the No. 9 typhoon "Masa" this year (tropical storm level, English name: MA-ON; Name origin: Hong Kong, China; name meaning: mountain peak) and No. 10 typhoon "Scorpion Tiger" (tropical storm level; English name: Tokage; name origin: Japan; name meaning: Scorpio tiger constellation).

Typhoon "Masa" was born in the ocean east of Luzon Island in the Philippines. It will approach my country in the future and will land on the coast of Guangdong during the day on the 25th, bringing wind and rain to our country.

Typhoon "Scorpion Tiger" was born in the ocean east of Japan and will have no impact on my country in the future.

  The Central Meteorological Observatory predicts that the "Saddle" will move to the northwest at a speed of 10 to 15 kilometers per hour. It will move into the northeastern part of the South my country Sea in the early morning of the 24th, and gradually approach the coast of Guangdong. Storm level (level 10-11, 25-30 m/s), and will land on the coast of Guangdong during the day on the 25th. The intensity is expected to be tropical storm level or severe tropical storm level (level 9-10, 23-28 meters) when it makes landfall. / sec), the intensity decreases rapidly after landing.

  According to meteorological experts, typhoon "Masaan" currently exhibits an obvious "eccentric" structure, with the main convective cloud cluster located on its southwest side, and the strong easterly shear at high altitude is relatively unfavorable for its intensity development.

After entering the South my country Sea, the high-altitude outflow situation has improved, which can change the asymmetric "eccentric" structure of the typhoon, which is conducive to the development of convection in the inner core area, and its intensity will be significantly strengthened. m/s) possibility.

  Strong wind forecast:

Affected by the "Saddle", from 20:00 on the 22nd to 08:00 on the 26th, the Bashi Strait, the ocean to the east of Taiwan, the Taiwan Strait, the northern part of the South China Sea, the coast of Taiwan, the coast of Fujian, the southern part of Guangdong and the coast will appear successively with magnitudes 7 to 8. Strong winds. Among them, there will be strong winds of magnitude 9 to 10 in the Bashi Strait, some sea areas in the northeastern part of the South China Sea, near the mouth of the Pearl River in Guangdong and its coastal areas.

  Meteorological experts reminded that the South China Sea and the coast of Guangdong need to pay attention to preventing the hazards of typhoons and strong winds.

Vessels and marine operators in the northern waters of the South China Sea need to return to the port to take shelter in time, and all regions along the coast of South China need to do a good job in the safety management of sea-related, island-related and marine tourism projects in advance.

  Rainfall forecast:

From the 25th to the 26th, there will be heavy rains in Guangdong, Guangxi, Hainan Island, southern Yunnan, southern Guizhou, and Taiwan Island. Among them, there will be heavy rain in central and southern Guangdong, eastern Guangxi, northern Hainan Island, and southeastern Taiwan Island. There are heavy rains or heavy rains in the area, and local heavy rains (250-300 mm) near the Pearl River Delta in Guangdong.

  Meteorological disaster risk forecast:

From the 25th to the 26th, the meteorological risk of flash floods and geological disasters in parts of southern and eastern Guangxi, southeastern Guangxi and other places is relatively high; the meteorological risk of floods of small and medium-sized rivers in parts of southern Guangdong and other places is relatively high; central and southern Guangdong, The risk of waterlogging in urban and rural areas is high in parts of southeastern Guangxi and other places. The depth of water accumulation will be 10-20 cm, and the depth of water accumulation in areas near the Pearl River Delta in Guangdong is more than 25 cm.

South China needs to strengthen the defense against rainstorm disasters.

Especially in the vicinity of the Pearl River Delta, the risk of disasters is high, and it is necessary to strengthen the prevention of landslides, mudslides, mountain torrents, floods in small and medium rivers, urban and rural waterlogging and other disasters that may be caused by heavy rainfall.
