The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) warned Tuesday of dangerously high
ultraviolet (UV) levels all around Taiwan and suggested that residents take precautionary steps to prevent sunburn and even heat strokes.
The EPA said that almost all of Taiwan is expected to record “excessively high” UV levels, with the UV index in Taipei in northern Taiwan, and Yilan, Hualien and Taitung in eastern Taiwan likely to hit 8.
The UV index is likely to reach 9 in Hsinchu and Miaoli in northern Taiwan, in Taichung in central Taiwan, and in Yunlin, Chiayi and Tainan in southern Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
