The provincial emergency management department has urged relevant departments to make preparations to combat Typhoon In-Fa.

The neighboring megacity of Shanghai has already issued a blue alert for strong winds, warning that vessels should return to ports for shelter and the flood prevention department should prepare for waterlogging.
