Tropical Storm Ampil has canceled hundreds of flights at Shanghai area-airports on Sunday, July 22, as the storm takes aim to make landfall between Shanghai and Taizhou on Sunday morning (local time). Some 300 flights are anticipated to be canceled at Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) on Sunday due to the storm; another 160 flights are expected to be canceled at Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport (SHA) on Sunday.

Ampil is forecast to particularly affect coastal areas from Xiangshan county (Zhejiang province) to Qidong (Jiangsu province) on Sunday. Heavy rainfall of 10-18 cm (4-7 in) is forecast in Shanghai, Zhejiang province, Jiangsu province, and Anhui province, with locally higher totals expected, in the coming hours. High winds of 80-100 km/h (50-62 mph) are also forecast in the Shanghai area on Sunday. Consequent flooding (including due to storm surge), landslides, and wind damages may result in further widespread transportation disruptions (including flight delays and cancelations) and power outages.

As Ampil continues to track inland in the coming days, the storm is forecast to bring heavy rains (around 7.5-15 cm [3-6 in]) and possible flooding to northern Anhui province, Henan province, and western Shandong province. Consequent landslides, transportation disruptions, and power outages are possible in these and other areas to be potentially affected by the storm.


Tropical Storm Ampil struck Okinawa (Japan) on July 21, forcing the cancelations of over 100 flights, affecting some 15,000 passengers. No casualties or significant material damages were immediately reported.

Typhoons and tropical storms regularly hit China and Japan from June through November after gathering strength in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean and the South China Sea.


Individuals traveling to, from, or via the abovementioned areas are advised to verify the status of their flight prior to departure for the airport and to contact their airline for more information. Those present in the affected areas are advised to monitor developments to the situation and to follow all instructions as issued by local authorities. Remember that driving or walking through running water can be dangerous; 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult.
