Fung Wong is expected to make landfall between Xiapu and Jinjiang counties on the coast of China by midnight (local time) on Monday.

About 275,000 people in China’s Fujian province have been evacuated.

Fung Wong, the eighth tropical storm to strike China’s coast this year, is reportedly the strongest one to date.
