Typhoon Mulan made landfall in China’s manufacturing hub of Guangdong on Wednesday, forcing some trains and ferries to suspend operations, with the torrential rains heading toward Hainan and potentially disrupting the island’s efforts to contain a Covid outbreak.

Some trains going through Zhanjiang city in Guangdong province will be halted in the next few days, while passenger liner services at ports including Nansha and Shekou in Shenzhen will be partially suspended, transport authorities said in a statement on Wechat.
