Taipei, Sept. 24 (CNA) Typhoon Trami has developed into a super typhoon and could start affecting Taiwan on Friday, according to the Central Weather Bureau.
Trami, which was upgraded into a super typhoon at around 2 p.m., was located 1,080 kilometers east-southeast from Taiwan’s southernmost tip, bureau data showed. It was moving in a west-northwesterly direction toward Japan’s Ryukyu Islands at a speed of 17 kilometers per hour.
There is a chance that Trami will make landfall on Taiwan, but many variables still exist that could affect the storm’s path, the bureau said. [FULL STORY]
