According to China’s weather agency, typhoon Nida made landfall at 3:35 a.m. Tuesday at Dapeng Peninsula in the city of Shenzhenin, south China’s Guangdong Province. The storm brought heavy rains, strong winds, and threats of flooding, which forced municipalities, transport services and businesses to close. The Guangdong region (Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Foshan, Shunde, Zhongshan, and Zhuhai) issued a brief red alert, its highest weather warning, in response to possible flooding.
According to China’s weather agency, rainfall totaled more than 7 inches (across the city) with a peak wind gust measured in excess of 90 mph.
Transportation services, throughout the region, began to resume activities on Tuesday afternoon. However, because of the city wide closures, some transportation services are experiencing delays.
Possible typhoon damage, and congestion within the transportation industry, may cause delays for shipments to or from China. Shippers should contact their Deringer representative to determine if their freight is impacted. Please send an email to Deringer’s Marketing Department with any questions.
