Gusty Typhoon Muifa set to Hit China (

Typhoon Muifa is set to bring gusty winds and rainfall to coastal areas of China late Saturday or on Sunday, after drenching the southern Japanese island of Okinawa.

The typhoon -- the ninth to hit China this year -- is headed for Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces, Xinhua News Agency reported.

The storm is expected to be east of the city of Shanghai, a major business and banking center, within the next 12 to 24 hours, CNN meteorologists say.

However, the typhoon will be weaker and less organized than it was previously.
