The Central Weather Bureau says that the second tropical storm of the season has formed in the South China Sea. Forecasters said Sunday that Tropical Storm Merbok is not likely to have a direct impact on Taiwan.
Meteorologists say, though, that the weather system is likely to bring precipitation to central and southern Taiwan in the form of scattered showers.
The bureau is also predicting that a convergence of weather storms will bring torrential rains which could affect Taiwan for the next seven days. [FULL STORY]
