Tropical Storm Kompasu is approaching Hainan

By Ding Xin / hicn.cn / Updated: 15:59,11-October-2021

The year’s 18th tropical storm  Kompasu has formed east of the Philippines and is forecast to affect Hainan, the southernmost province of China. The center of Kompasu was located on the sea about 890 kilometers northeast of Manila at 8 o'clock on the 10th. It is expected that the Kompasu will enter the northeastern part of the South China Sea during the evening of the 11th, and then move westward towards the east coast of Hainan Island. Kompasu will gradually grow stronger, becoming a category 1 typhoon before making landfall on Hainan. 
Due to the effects of the storm, Hainan is expected to see strong winds and rain from the 11th to the 14th. The Hainan Provincial Meteorological Department has issued a warning that the Qiongzhou Strait may be closed again at noon on the 12th due to the influence of Kompasu, so please plan your travel accordingly. 
Due to the short interval between the two tropical storms affecting Hainan, there is an increased possibility of flooding. Please avoid going out during the typhoon, and detour around any flooded areas.
