Shanghai dropped its typhoon alert to the lowest level and was gradually getting back to normal a day after Muifa disrupted daily activity with strong winds and heavy rain.

The city restarted subway services early Thursday, and commuters were returning to work in the Lujiazui area, home to the nation’s stock market and major banks and insurers.
