Taiwan Issues Maritime Alert against Approaching Typhoon Mangkhut

TAIWAN – Taiwan issued on Friday a maritime warning against Typhoon Mangkhut, which is expected to pass over the waters to the south of the island in the direction of China, according to the Central Weather Bureau.

Mangkhut, moving at a speed of 25 kilometers per hour (15.5 miles per hour) with sustained winds of 209 kph and gusts of 263 kph, was situated around midday some 800 km from Hengchun, the southernmost area of the island.

Taiwan’s weather agencies expect Mangkhut to approach Taiwan on Saturday, bringing heavy rainfall to the south of the island with strong winds and waves at sea.

Initially, Taiwanese meteorologists feared that the eye of the typhoon would hit the island; however, its trajectory has been shifting southwards and now it is expected to affect northern Philippines more, before reaching China.
