Hundreds of fishermen and residents took shelter from heavy rains and strong winds on Yongxing Island. A high-speed railway that loops around China’s southernmost island province of Hainan suspended services due to torrential rain. The storm is expected to hit Vietnam late on Saturday. More than a hundred people have died there in weeks of bad weather.CGTN YouTube Channel
