The Central Weather Bureau (CWB) yesterday said that it was not likely to issue a sea alert for tropical storm Fung-wong (鳳凰) as the storm is forecast to move farther away from Taiwan.

As of 2pm yesterday, Fung-wong was 420km southeast of Oluanpi (鵝鑾鼻). It was moving northwest at 14kph.

Data from the bureau also showed that its maximum wind speed reached 108kph, with its radius expanding to 120km.
