Taiwan's Executive Yuan announced that work and classes in Tainan City, Kaohsiung City, Pingtung County, Hualien County, Taitung County, and Penghu County would be canceled Saturday (August 24) due to approaching Tropical Storm Bailu.

Earlier, work and classes on Green Island (Lyudao Township) and Orchid Island (Lanyu Township) had been canceled for Friday (August 23) evening.
