China’s first typhoon of the year has brought gales and rain to its southern shores.

This is as forecasters on Saturday warn of record rainfall and high disaster risk in provinces including Guangdong, the country’s most populous.

The National Meteorological Center said in a statement that the Typhoon Chaba is expected to lose strength over time, and is likely to bring extremely heavy rains and may break the record for cumulative rainfall.

In its statement, the Meteorological Center said; “The abundant monsoon water vapour will lead to intense downpours and huge cumulative rainfall of an extreme nature."

In recent weeks, rainfall and flooding in southern China have destroyed property, paralysed traffic and disrupted the daily lives of millions in the country.

Forecasters added that extreme weather including unusually heavy flooding is expected to continue in China through August.
