Double trouble. Typhoon Damrey and tropical storm Saola are both making landfall in mainland China.
Damrey, with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph (equivalent to a category 1 hurricane), is coming ashore this afternoon (EDT) in northern Jiangsu.
To the south, Saola, with maximum sustained winds of around 50 mph, is forecast to drift across the Taiwan straight before moving inland near Fuzhou around 8 p.m. EDT, says the Joint Typhoon Warning Center.
The main hazard from these storms is torrential rain.
Incredibly, Saola dumped a jaw-dropping 70 inches of rain over three days in one location as it crossed northern and western Taiwan AccuWeather says. Voice of America reports Saola has already been blamed for four deaths there.
In the Philippines, Saola killed 23 people says Al-Jazeera.
