61 bullet trains cancelled as Dujuan approaches Fujian

As of 9:00 a.m. local time on Monday, Dujuan was centered 250 kilometers east-southeast of Yilan County, moving west-northwest at 9 mph (14 kph), according to Taiwan's Central Weather Bureau.

The typhoon is expected to make landfall between Hualien and Yilan in northern Taiwan on Monday evening after affecting Japan's southern Ryukyu islands. The weather bureau issued a land warning, advising people in northern and eastern Taiwan to be prepared for heavy rain.

Dujuan was then forecast to move across the Taiwan Strait and make its second landfall in coastal area between Fujian's Lianjiang and Longhai on Tuesday morning or noon.

Xiamen is expected to see torrential rain and high waves in coastal areas on Tuesday.

The typhoon-induced storm is expected to coincide with an astronomical high tide that will occur in the early Tuesday morning. The tide may cause the seawater to backflow and flood streets in some coastal areas and low-lying parts of Xiamen such as No.1 Port, Shengping Road, Minzu Road, Shapowei, Baicheng Beach and Gulangyu Piano Wharf, according to the Xiamen meteorological observatory.

In addition, 61 bullet trains in Xiamen will be suspended on Tuesday, according to Nanchang Railway Bureau.
