Typhoon Haishen, the 10th typhoon this year, is expected to approach northeast China's Jilin Province Tuesday as local authorities have strengthened preparations to reduce losses.

The province is facing a relatively high risk of flooding, mountain torrents and waterlogging, as the soil is already saturated due to rain brought by previous typhoons, according to the local authorities.

The province has prepared emergency supplies worth over 130 million yuan (about 18.94 million U.S. dollars) and organized 70 warehouses stocked with emergency supplies across the province.

Jilin has also set up more than 1,900 emergency response and rescue teams and a special fund of 230 million yuan for disaster relief.

Typhoon Bavi and Typhoon Maysak, the eighth and ninth typhoons of this year, both brought strong rain and wind to China's northeastern region, making Haishen the third typhoon to affect the region in half a month.

Compared with other provinces in eastern and southern China, typhoons are less common in China's northeastern region.
