Taipei, Oct. 29 (CNA) Tropical Storm Goni, currently located in waters east of the Philippines, continued moving in a westerly direction Thursday and is forecast to pass through Luzon before heading toward the South China Sea, but is unlikely to affect Taiwan, according to the Central Weather Bureau.

The storm is likely to intensify, but whether it brings moisture to Taiwan will depend on its future development, said CWB meteorologist Yeh Chih-chun (葉致均).

As of 2 p.m., the storm was located around 1,710 kilometers in waters east-southeast of Eluanbi, the southernmost point of Taiwan.

It was moving west at a speed of 20 kilometers per hour, carrying maximum sustained winds of 72 kph, with gusts of up to 101 kph, the bureau said.    [FULL  STORY]
