Construction workers line up as they have their temperature, health code and travel history code checked at Luyan Village of Zhangyan Town in Jinshan after they were evacuated ahead of Typhoon Chanthu. A total of 11,581 construction workers, thousands of local residents and migrant workers in the suburban district had been relocated by noon on Monday. Chanthu, this year's 14th typhoon, is expected to whirl over the sea, about 100-200 kilometers east of Shanghai, from Monday night to Wednesday, and will move northeast from Thursday onwards, the local weather bureau said in an update. The heavy rains and strong winds brought by Chanthu are forecast to stay in the city until Thursday.
