Shanghai has halted some container port operations and will cancel most flights Monday and Tuesday as Typhoon Chanthu approaches the city, which is China’s financial capital and a major shipping hub.

The city’s container port, the world’s biggest, has suspended some container-related operations, Shanghai International Port Group said in a statement on its wechat account. While the tropical storm was expected to make landfall in the southern part of the city Monday night, state-owned Global Times reported that the typhoon won’t cross the coast, citing meteorological experts.
