The annual Qiantang River tidal bore is underway in eastern China’s Zhejiang province. Typhoons Meranti and Malakas have brought the water level of the Qiantang River higher than usual. Helped by the strong winds, the tide is traveling at 20 kilometers per hour against the normal current. The high-speed tides crash against the dam, and bounce back onto the incoming water, forming a spectacular returning tidal bore. The crashing water rises up to 15 meters into the air, attracting a large number of tourists along the river.
