The southern provinces of China have been on red alert as typhoon Mujigae churned toward land.

 
Mujugae is expected to bring gales and torrential rain to the coastal regions of Hainan, Guangdong and Guangxi from Sunday to Monday.
 
Mujugae, the 22nd typhoon of the year, made landfall in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong on Sunday.
 
It bypassed Hainan, the southernmost island province of China.
 
Since Saturday, both Hainan and Guangdong suspended air and train services as the storm approaches.
 
The typhoon comes amid China's week-long National Day holiday.
 
The Guangdong government has ordered suspension of all maritime travel and entertainment activities.
 
Some coastal tourist destinations are also closed over safety concerns.
 
In Hainan, dozens of flights were canceled Saturday at the Haikou Meilan International Airport.
 
High-speed trains linking Haikou and Sanya also suspend service over the weekend.
 
More than 60,000 fishing boats have returned to harbor, while nearly 17,000 fishermen evacuated across the region.
