Beijing (AP) -- Flights and trains were canceled in Shanghai, China's largest city, as Typhoon Chanthu moved up the Chinese coast Monday after bringing heavy rain and wind to Taiwan.

Local media reported all flights were suspended from Shanghai’s two airports. Some subway lines were shut down, while classes and many offices and shops were closed for the day.
