Taipei, Aug. 4 (CNA) The Central Weather Bureau (CWB) warned Tuesday of the potential damage Super Typhoon Soudelor may cause Taiwan, describing it as a “single wolf” typhoon.
Though the storm’s center is still 2,000 kilometers away, it is moving at a speed of 21 kilometers per hour toward northern Taiwan, and the CWB urged the public to be on the alert as the typhoon approaches.
The bureau said it could issue sea and land warnings for the typhoon on Thursday.
Describing Soudelor as a “single wolf,” the bureau said it would bring heavy winds and rain to Taiwan but would sweep across the island quickly rather than hovering for an extended period of time. [FULL STORY]
