People have been advised to brace for Typhoon Talim today as it approaches the
eastern and northern coasts of Taiwan, the Central Weather Bureau said yesterday.
The bureau did not issue a sea alert until 2:30pm yesterday as it adjusted the typhoon’s projected path.
The bureau had forecast Talim’s eye would make landfall in the northeast, but yesterday revised its prediction, saying that the typhoon would only move through the waters near the north coast before heading toward Japan.
As of 8:30pm yesterday, Talim’s center was 680km southeast of Taipei, moving northwest at 16kph with a storm radius of 200km. [FULL STORY]
