Typhoon Wipha and Shanghai Watch

A clip from the full story at Bloomberg on Typhoon Wipha:

Typhoon Wipha slammed into the east coast of China with winds of 185 kilometers per hour (116 miles per hour), causing almost $400 million in damage as it headed toward Shanghai. About 2 million people were evacuated.

Wipha’s eye crossed the coast in eastern Zhejiang province after 2 a.m. today with winds gusting to 232 kilometers per hour, according to the U.S. Navy Joint Typhoon Warning Center. Winds later decreased to 90 kilometers an hour, meaning Wipha was downgraded to a tropical storm. No deaths have been reported, China’s official Xinhua News Agency said.
