ZHEJIANG province has set up a flood control contingency plan to prepare for the typhoon season. Thirteen rescue teams, made up of soldiers, have had 10 days training and prepared 82 rescue boats. An official said: 'The teams are paying special attention to lakes that proved most prone to flooding last year.' Zhejiang, on the southeast coast, is particularly vulnerable to typhoons. One in August 1994 killed more than 700 people and caused 10 billion yuan (HK$9.3 billion) damage. The city of Wenzhou, which has suffered great losses in the past, has invested 500 million yuan in recent years rebuilding its coastline. Ouhai region has built a 19 kilometre-long coastal barricade which is expected to last 50 years.
