Typhoon is a large and powerful tropical cyclone, a low pressure area rotating counterclockwise and containing rising warm air that forms over warm water in the tropical or subtropical oceans.

Pedestrians


 ·Wear a raincoat instead of taking an umbrella when going out.
 ·Stay as far away as possible from tall trees, sheds, scaffoldings, suspended power lines, etc.
 ·Do not walk under high walls, billboards, and residential buildings to avoid heavy falling objects.
 ·Stay away from high-rise building construction site, tower cranes, and surrounding walls of construction sites.
 ·Be aware of the water in street. Do not walk near the floodwater or in the whirling water in street.
 ·Take shelter in the nearby shops, restaurants or other public places when strong winds render it difficult to walk.  

     ·Stay away from toppled electric power poles or other power transmission facilities to avoid electric shock.

 

Navigating ships


 ·Stay alert to the radio and TV weather forecast of the neighboring regions, to know the updated situation of sea winds and waves.
     ·Keep in touch with the commanding headquarter on land to avoid possible typhoon in time.
