Hurricanes in China are called typhoons.

Typhoons hit China more often than any other country in Asia.

On the average, about 7 or 8 land each year.

China is a country that suffers from hurricanes because its typhoon season lasts all year.

The strongest recorded hurricane in China was named Typhoon Rammasun.

Hainan averages 1.3 tropical cyclones annually, while Fujian experiences 1.2 tropical cyclones annually, and Zhejiang witnessed 0.9 tropical cyclones annually.

The wettest tropical cyclone on record for the mainland was Super Typhoon Carla, which dropped 2,749 millimeters (108.2 in) of rain over a 48-hour period.

China is a hurricane-prone place because of the year-round typhoon season.

You could say it's the country that gets the most hurricanes each year. Since 1970, there have been over 127 hurricanes in China.

In the last few decades, almost all types of major hazards except volcanic eruptions have hit China; these include earthquakes, typhoons, floods, droughts and sandstorms, storm surges, landslides and debris flows, hailstorms, cold waves, heat waves, pests and rodent disease, forest and grassland fires, and red tides.
