Second, we must pay close attention to the development trend of typhoons, discuss and determine the movement path and scope of the typhoon in rolling discussions, encrypt forecasts of typhoon rainfall in the imminent period, and release early warning information in a timely manner. Third, we must strengthen the supervision of reservoir dispatching and operation, strictly prohibit the operation of reservoirs in violation of the flood limit water level, supervise the dangerous reservoirs in the typhoon-affected area to reduce the water level or empty reservoirs to meet the flood, and the construction in progress strictly implements safety measures to ensure the safety of the reservoirs.
