Northern Taiwan Readies for Super Typhoon Maria

TAIPEI – Taiwan has started evacuations and preparations for the arrival of Super Typhoon Maria, which is expected to especially affect the north – the most densely populated region where the capital is located.

The first gusts of Maria will arrive in northern Taiwan Tuesday night and all industrial, financial and educational activities have come to a standstill in the zone which could be hit by winds up to 191 kilometers per hour (119 miles per hour) with gusts up to 234 kph, Taiwan’s Central Weather Bureau said on Tuesday.

Five railway lines in Taiwan have announced the interruption of services and numerous airlines have canceled flights for Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

Buses and subways in major cities have not yet announced interruption of services.

Some 4,000 tourists on Orchid island were evacuated on Monday and selective evacuations have begun in places at risk of floods, which so far have affected some 500 people, according to the emergency and disaster response center.
