Preparing for a storm

Soldiers help local fishermen fasten ships during heavy rain caused by Tropical Storm Nanmadol at a dock in Fuzhou, the capital of southeast China's Fujian province, on Aug. 30.

As Nanmadol approached, gales and rainstorms swept coastal cities in east China earlier this week. Previously categorized as a typhoon, Nanmadol was downgraded to a tropical storm on Monday.
