The National Meteorological Center of China (NMC) said on Friday that three more tropical storms would form in a few days to come, and two of which might hit south and southeast coastal areas of China.

"The tropical cyclones were not strong at present. But typhoons are frequent in August and in September, so, we should get prepared," said He Lifu, chief forecaster with the NMC.

The seventh and the eighth tropical storms of the year - Pabuk and Wutip - were not fully developed, as the power of the two was partly offset by each other, said Qian Chuanhai with the NMC.

Pabuk had made a landfall in Hong Kong at about 4:00 p.m., packing up wind of 20 meters per second, and moved northeastward while abating.

Wutip, which means butterfly, is forecast to hit east China's Fujian Province on Friday with powerful impact.
