Taipei, Oct. 18 (CNA) Strong Typhoon Koppu has been losing strength and is
forecast to bring heavy rain to northern and eastern parts of Taiwan on Monday, according to the Central Weather Bureau.
Although Koppu has made landfall in the Philippines and been downgraded, the bureau said it is expected to veer northwards and that it will not be able to determine its likely effect on Taiwan more accurately until Tuesday.
Koppu is currently located about 680km south southeast of the southernmost point of Cape Erluanpi (鵝鑾鼻), according to the bureau. [FULL STORY]
