Typhoon In-fa, known in the Philippines as Typhoon Fabian, is an active and very large tropical cyclone inland over China.
- The system was first noted as an area of low pressure, located east of the Philippines on July 14.
- Favorable conditions helped the storm to intensify, becoming a tropical depression, two days later and a tropical storm on July 17.
- The storm has exacerbated and played a part in starting the 2021 Henan floods. Since 17 July 2021, China’s Henan province has been affected by severe flooding, caused by a period of prolonged heavy rainfall.
- According to projections, In-fa would beat Typhoon Fitow of 2013 as the costliest typhoon to strike China, and the third costliest typhoon on record (a total of $14.7 billion) when adjusted for inflation.
