This is the biggest cargo ship anchorage in Zhoushan harbor: In order to prevent any losses; more than 200 domestic or international cargo ships anchored here before Typhoon Muifa arrived.

Captain Yuan Weijun said, “With strong winds, the rain started falling here from Saturday morning. In the afternoon, the wind began to intensify. And early Sunday morning, it reached its highest level. The strong wind caused waves to 2 or 3 meters high. ”

Capitan Ruan told us they took precautionary measures before Muifa’s arrival. After the typhoon passed, safety checks are necessary. 15 seamen on board look forward to setting out tomorrow morning.

Captain Yuan said,“We've come from Nantong, our destination is Dalian. We have already anchored here for 2 days. We will decide when to weigh anchor according to the meteorological situation.”

Dalian is one of the regions that will be affected by the new trajectory of Typhoon Muifa. Sailing speed limits and a thorough safety inspection are essential for the ship.
