Country braces for 2 typhoons

East China's coastal regions have begun emergency preparations as two typhoons approached the country on Wednesday.

The center of typhoon Saola, the ninth typhoon this year, was about 210 km southeast of Hualien, Taiwan, at 1 pm on Wednesday, the National Marine Environmental Forecasting Center said.

Typhoon Saola would make landfall over Taiwan's coast or the northeastern waters of the island on Wednesday night or this morning, the center said.
