Fishing boats have returned to harbor and authorities are evacuating scenic spots in the city before Baloven, the 15th typhoon of the year, arrives.

In the coastal city of Dalian, the Dalian Port Passenger Service Company said that it will stop sending out passenger liners starting from 6 p.m.

The province's flood relief departments have also sent personnel to inspect reservoirs, bridges and roads.

Bolaven entered the East China Sea on Monday, bringing gales and downpours to eastern coastal areas, according to the Zhejiang Meteorological Observatory.

Flights linking the city of Ningbo and Jeju Island in South Korea, as well as the city of Taichung in Taiwan, have been canceled following the arrival of Bolaven, Ningbo airport authorities said.

Bolaven is also expected to bring strong winds and rainstorms to the eastern provinces of Shandong and Jiangsu, as well as the metropolis of Shanghai, on Monday and Tuesday, according to the National Marine Environmental Forecasting Center.

As of Monday morning, Jiangsu had evacuated more than 23,000 people from their homes and suspended shipping services on Taihu Lake, the second-largest freshwater lake in China, according to the province's flood control authorities.
