Taiwan - Possible Sea Alert, Typhoon Unlikely to Hit Land

Weather bureau may issue sea alert for Songda (

The Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said yesterday it might issue a sea alert for Typhoon Songda today, adding that the chance of the typhoon’s radius covering the nation remains low.


The bureau may issue a sea alert either this evening or early tomorrow morning if the radius of the storm enters the nation’s sea alert zone, she said.

Lin said the projected path of Songda showed the typhoon continuing along the edge of the Pacific high-pressure system, adding a land alert was unlikely because the storm’s radius has a very low chance of covering land.

Nonetheless, the bureau said the typhoon’s circumference would still bring showers to the northern and eastern parts of the nation, which are the windward side.

Both central and southern Taiwan, which are on the leeward, are expected to have relatively stable weather, the bureau said
