Shanghai gradually started returning to normal on Thursday after Typhoon Muifa brought strong winds and heavy rain to the financial and shipping hub overnight.

The region’s ports began to reopen, airports resumed passenger flights and train services were restored as the city dropped its typhoon alert to the lowest level. Commuters returned to work in the Lujiazui area, home to mainland China’s biggest stock exchange and major banks and insurers, as subway service restarted.
