De grootste problemen worden verwacht in de provincies Zhejiang en Fujian. Meteorologen verwachten dat Krosa in de loop van zaterdagavond of -nacht (Nederlandse tijd) China zal bereiken.
Krosa ontwrichtte zaterdag het openbare leven in grote delen van Taiwan. Bedrijven en instellingen bleven dicht, het openbaar vervoer lag grotendeels stil.
De schade is volgens Aziatische media aanzienlijk. In meer dan 600.000 huishoudens viel de stroom uit. Voor zover bekend vielen er zeker twee doden en tientallen gewonden.
In China is het vakantietijd, waardoor vooral zaterdag veel toeristen moesten vertrekken van eilanden voor de kust. Verscheidene toeristische evenementen werden geschrapt, aldus Chinese media.
Omdat Krosa mogelijk in de metropool Shanghai voor problemen kan zorgen, zijn daar speciale draaiboeken uit de kast gehaald voor een goede doorgang van de Special Olympics, de Olympische Spelen voor mensen met een verstandelijke handicap.

Zhejiang province was among the areas worst hit in China
More than 1.4 million people were evacuated ahead of Typhoon Krosa, which struck Zhejiang and Fujian provinces on Sunday, Xinhua news agency reported. No deaths were reported and it was later downgraded to a tropical storm.
In Vietnam, meanwhile, the toll from Typhoon Lekima, which struck last week, rose to at least 55, officials said. Hardest hit were the provinces of Thanh Hoa and Nghe An, south of the capital, Hanoi. Hundreds of thousands of homes were said to be under water, and a Red Cross official described the situation as "very acute". Several bombs from the Vietnam War era that were exposed by landslides have been defused by military engineers, local media reported.
Typhoon Krosa struck Taiwan before making landfall in China on Sunday afternoon, where it was estimated to have caused more than $600m (Â£300m) worth of damage.

About 75,000 fishing vessels were recalled to port as gale-force winds and heavy rain hit the south-eastern provinces. The storm halted air, sea and road traffic and closed schools, while houses were destroyed in the port city of Wenzhou, Xinhua said. Twenty-seven sailors had to be rescued when their freighter suffered mechanical failure off Wenzhou, the agency said.
Krosa has now been downgraded to a tropical storm and is heading back out into the East China Sea, forecasters said. But officials in Fujian and Zhejiang have warned of more rain and possible landslides in the coming days. Typhoon Krosa is the 16th typhoon to hit China this year.
On Saturday, Krosa brought chaos to northern Taiwan, with torrential downpours triggering flooding and landslides.
The BBC's Caroline Gluck in Taipei says Krosa's sprawling 300km radius ensured its strength was felt across the island. At least five people died in storm-related accidents and more than 52 people were injured. More than 1m (3ft) of rain fell in places, and wind gusts of more than 185km/h (115mph) were recorded. In Taipei, more than 200 trees were uprooted and several floods reported. Power supplies and transport services were seriously affected. Krosa is the Cambodian word for crane.
