Typhoon Bailu made landfall in east China's Fujian Province Sunday, local authorities said.

With a maximum wind force of 90 km/h, Bailu, the 11th typhoon this year, made landfall in Dongshan County at 7:25 a.m.

Fujian province said on Saturday that 9,926 fishing vessels had been recalled to harbor as it girds for the coming Typhoon Bailu.

The province's flood control and drought relief headquarters said 14,012 people had been evacuated from aquatic farms. Authorities also closed 149 seaside scenic spots and 1,318 construction sites out of safety concerns.

The typhoon also halted ferry services between Xiamen and Kinmen in Taiwan, and between Pingtan and Taiwan's Taichung. A total of 124 flights have been canceled at Xiamen airport.

South China's Guangdong province launched a level-IV emergency response, the lowest level, for strong winds. The provincial agriculture and rural affairs department issued a notice requesting fishing vessels in related waters to return to harbor for shelter.

The Guangdong Power Grid Corporation has deployed more than 300 power generation vehicles and over 400 sets of satellite communication equipment for emergency repair.
