China's National Meteorological Center (NMC) issued a yellow warning for typhoon on Monday morning as Typhoon Noru, previously classed as a super typhoon, entered the central and eastern parts of the South China Sea on Monday morning and is expected to bring gales and rainstorms to the South China Sea and the coastal areas in South China in the following three days as it moves westward. Meteorologists reminded ships and personnel to stay away from the affected areas. 

Due to the joint influence of Noru and a cold front, regions including the coastal areas of East China's Fujian Province, South China's Guangdong and Hainan provinces, western parts of the island of Taiwan are expected to experience gales of up to 75 kilometers to 88 kilometers per hour. Meteorologists also stated that since Noru is moving fast with strong power, and can escalate into a super typhoon when it affects the South China Sea and the coastal areas in South China, ships and personnel operated and working in the central part of South China Sea and on the Xisha Islands and the Zhongsha Islands should be evacuated from the areas in a timely manner, and the ships near the coastal areas of South China should return to the harbors. 

The NMC forecasted that between 8 am on Monday and 8 am on Tuesday, heavy rains and rainstorms are expected to sweep through the Nansha Islands, the Zhongsha Islands and the Xisha Islands with some islands experiencing torrential rains of 100 millimeters to 130 millimeters per 24 hours.
