As of 8:30pm, Lekima’s center was 670km southeast of Taipei. It was moving northwest at 14kph, with a maximum wind speed of 155kph and a radius of 220km.

Lekima is expected to become somewhat stronger as it approaches, with its radius forecast to expand to 250km, bureau forecaster Hsieh Ming-chan (謝明昌) said.
