Taiwan-bound 'Talim' could become super typhoon, China says

Tropical Storm 20W (Talim), # 5

Two of the largest carriers in Taiwan namely EVA airways and China Airlines, may cancel a few of their global flights in view of the typhoon.

"Typhoon Talim has been changing its course and is not entirely predictable".

A sea warning for Typhoon Talim is expected to be lifted Thursday evening, after it moves toward Japan, according to the Central Weather Bureau (CWB). "It's been expected to hit Taiwan directly, but its trajectory has altered further northward and eastward".

It had not yet been determined whether the Taiwan government would close financial markets, companies or schools on Thursday.

The level of alert remains high, and two of China's largest carriers, China Airlines and EVA Airways, said they will cancel inbound and outbound global flights.

Typhoons are a seasonal routine for Taiwan, but the island has stepped up preparations since Typhoon Morakat in 2009. But it has become much more aggressive about preparations since Morakot battered the island in 2009, killing around 700 people - majority in mudslides.

Relevant government agencies were told to monitor Typhoon Talim and take emergency measures in a timely manner, according to a statement on the official website of Fujian province.

Typhoon Talim is due to make landfall late Wednesday.

The typhoon was initially forecast to slam China's southeast coast on Thursday night or Friday morning, and was predicted to become a super typhoon packing winds of 60 meters per second or 185 kilometers per hour, which is comparable to a Category 4 or 5 hurricane in the US.

China has a four-tier color-coded system for severe weather, with red being the most serious, followed by orange, yellow and blue.

The storm is expected to turn northeast towards Japan on Friday, while another heads toward southern China and Vietnam.

Over 200,000 people have already been evacuated from Fujian and Zhejiang province as of today, with reports earlier saying that up to 500,000 people would need to be moved to safety if Talim hit.

Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific Airways said flights to and from Sanya, the southernmost city on Hainan island, may be affected on Friday.

Earlier this week, Maring had dumped heavy rains in the Philippine capital of Manila and nearby provinces, causing widespread flooding and landslides.
