Tropical Storm Bebinca Heads for the coast of Southern China

Tropical storm Bebinca will be the first to make landfall this year in China. Guangdong is preparing for the greeting of Bebinca in less than 24 hours from now. The maximum sustained winds at this point is 80 km per hour, and it is running right at Buangdong's coastal areas at somewhere between 15 and 20 km per hour. Next to Hainan Province, Bebinca is expected to enter land near Taishan or Wenchang.
For the next two days the wesrtern parts of Guangdong will see lots of heavy rains within the next 48 hours. The extreme weather conditions will have a definite impact along the coastal areas, as expected erosion and flooding is expected.
Have you ever wondered where some of these Cyclone names come from? In this case, Bebinca is named after a pudding that is very common in Macao.
