Typhoon Nida landed at 3:35 a.m. Tuesday at the Dapeng Peninsula in the city of Shenzhen, South China's Guangdong province, local weather authorities said.
 
The strong typhoon packing winds up to 151.2 km per hour is moving northwest at 25 km per hour, and is expected to sweep across the cities of Shenzhen, Dongguan, Guangzhou, Foshan and Zhaoqing to Guangdong's neighboring Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, according to Guangdong provincial weather authorities.
 
Dozens of flights, trains and ferries scheduled for Monday and Tuesday were canceled on Monday as China issued its highest alert for Typhoon Nida, which was heading toward Guangdong province and neighboring southern areas.
 
Ferry services connecting Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Hong Kong were suspended on Monday. About 100 trains heading for and departing from cities in Guangdong province have been canceled or will change lines to avoid the typhoon until Wednesday, according to statements from provincial train stations.
 
For example, all trains heading for Hainan were halted, and trains linking Guangzhou and Zhuhai were to be suspended on Tuesday. Dozens of flights in three major airports in the province also were canceled or delayed due to the coming typhoon.
 
In other affected provinces, governments also issued high alerts on Monday, requiring full preparations for the typhoon, including that all fishing boats must remain sheltered.
