The proxy records on typhoons in the Yangtze River Delta from 1644 to 1949 AD were extracted from historical chorographies in the Qing Dynasty and the Republic of China Period. In reference to the basic principles for identifying historical typhoons, time series on the Yangtze River Delta over a period of 306 years were developed. It is highlighted that before the 20th century, the number of typhoon activities in warm periods is less than the number of cold periods. However, the number of typhoon activities increased dramatically in the early 20th century. Comparing the typhoon activities with El Niño events, the data show that the number of typhoon activities did not increase when El Niño occurred
