ZHENGZHOU, Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on Wednesday urged local governments to make full preparations for the approaching typhoons, Saola and Damrey, so as to ensure safety of both the residents and properties.

Wen made the remarks in Zhengzhou, capital of central China's Henan Province, during his inspection tour to examine efforts to prevent flooding in the Yellow River.

Local governments should be prepared to guard against "major floods" which might result in serious disasters, he said, adding that the two strong typhoons might sweep both China's coastal and inland areas.

Wen asked local authorities to closely monitor the typhoons, their effects on the situation of major rivers, and publicize relevant information in a timely manner.

"Great importance should be attached to handle urban waterlogging caused by rainstorms," he said.

Local governments should intensify efforts to guard residential areas, schools, factories, mines, railways and highways, and tourism spots from floods, he said.
