Shanghai on Tuesday resumed most operations of its two airports, rails, light-rail metro as well as ferry services across Huangpu river due to the waning strength of Typhoon Chanthu.

Chanthu, the 14th typhoon this year, was forecast to swirl above the northwestern part of the East China Sea around Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the National Meteorological Center.

In preparation of a possible landfall of the typhoon, Shanghai had suspended schools, flights and trains since Monday afternoon. The typhoon did not make landfall, moving northeast with weakened intensity on Monday night, according to the Shanghai Meteorological Center.

On Tuesday, Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport resumed take-offs and landings at 10 am while Shanghai Pudong International Airport followed suit at 2 pm, according to the Shanghai Airport Authority.

All rail services, except for the Jinshan railway, resumed operations on Tuesday afternoon. The city's metro services, except for five light-rail sections close to the coast, did the same, according to the city's transportation authorities.

The city is still expected to experience strong winds and thunderstorms in the coming days due to the lingering influence of the typhoon.
