Molave weakens into a tropical depression

TYPHOON Molave weakened into a tropical depression yesterday afternoon after it made landfall in Guangdong Province and then moved into the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

The storm made landfall in Nan'ao Town in Shenzhen City at 12:50am with winds up to 145 kilometers per hour.

Downpours drenched Zhanjiang, Maoming, Jiangmen and Yangjiang in Guangdong, with 13 hydrological stations reporting precipitation of more than 100 millimeters, the Guangdong Hydrological Bureau said.

No casualties were reported in Guangdong as of 5pm.

Maritime rescuers successfully retrieved a stranded vessel off the coast of Shantou and saved its seven crew members.
