TAIPEI: Taiwan has been spared the brunt of Typhoon Noul, as the storm moves northeast along the island’s eastern coast without making landfall.
The typhoon has weakened since Sunday (May 10), after sweeping through the
Philippines and killing at least two people there. Still, Taiwan’s coastal areas such as Taitung and Hualien are being lashed by heavy rains and fierce winds.
Due to safety concerns, domestic flights and ferries between Taitung and the outlying Green Island and Lanyu Island have been cancelled, while school and work has been suspended for residents on the two offshore islands. [FULL STORY]
