Typhoon Nida made landfall in southern China's Guangdong province, with its cities on high alert, state media reported on Tuesday (August 2), Al-Alam News Network reports.

State broadcaster CCTV showed footage of waves crashing against sea wall across the province, saying that Shenzhen city had asked 1213 boats to return back to port, and cancelled 202 flights and 160 trains as of 10:00 a.m. (0200 GMT) on Tuesday.

The province had taken precautions and transferred people to safe zone on Monday (August 1) as it braced for Nida, it added.

CCTV said Nida would move into Guangxi province later of the day, bringing torrential rain to southern part of the country.

Last month, Typhoon Nepartak drove at least 420,000 Chinese from their homes and caused more than 7.1 billion yuan ($1.1 billion) in losses in Fujian province alone.
