    Typhoon to skirt Shanghai, move up coast of northeast China

    BEIJING (AP) — A typhoon was headed toward the Chinese coast yesterday and forecast to make landfall near the port city of Ningbo later in the day.

    Typhoon Muifa had maximum sustained winds of 145 kilometres an hour as it moved northeast, the Hong Kong Observatory said.

    The storm’s track would take it just east of the city of Shanghai and then inland through Jiangsu and Shandong provinces on China’s northeast coast.

    All flights were cancelled at the Ningbo airport and over 11,000 fishing boats returned to port in Zhejiang province, according to Chinese media reports.
