Typhoon Doksuri, China’s fifth and most powerful typhoon in 2023, has caused significant rainfall and flooding in Beijing and other provinces.

 

China is vulnerable to typhoons due to its long eastern coastline, warm ocean waters, and geographic location in the western Pacific basin. Typhoons tend to form in this region and often make landfall in China, bringing heavy rainfall, strong winds, and potential flooding and damage to coastal areas.
