Vegetable prices in Sanya have skyrocketed after the island was hit by two tropical storms destroying vegetable farms and livestock.
 
A monitoring visit by the local price control bureau revealed that the average vegetable price increased by 25.8%. The selling price of cabbage have risen from 5 yuan to 12 yuan per kg, up 50% compared with the non-typhoon period, while coriander has even jumped to 30 yuan per kg.
 
According to the local authority, as typhoons struck most of the vegetable fields in Hainan, the shortage of supply has given rise to the sharp hike in vegetable prices.
 
Besides, due to Typhoon Neglae, the suspension of the Qiongzhou Strait has also severely affected the flow of vegetable commerce into Hainan, causing additional hauling costs.
 
The Authority pointed out that prices of vegetables will continue to maintain rising by the end of the National Day holiday.
