Taiwan’s Central Weather Administration issued a sea level typhoon warning covering waters to the east, south and north of the island as moderate Typhoon Himanmol hovered about 470 kilometers east of Taiwan’s southernmost tip this morning, Sept. 2. issued.
At 8:30 am, the CWB issued a maritime alert for northeast waters, east waters including Orchid Island and Green Island, and Bashi Channel. The CWB noted that Typhoon Himanmoru had weakened into a moderate typhoon with a central pressure of 930 hPa, but the radius of the storm had widened. The maximum sustained wind speed near the center is estimated at 48 m/s and the maximum gust is estimated at 58 m/s. The wind radius for Beaufort scale 7 is estimated at 250 kilometers, and the wind radius for Beaufort scale 10 is estimated at 100 kilometers.
The center of the storm was located at 21.5 degrees north latitude and 125.4 degrees east longitude at 8:00 am. Sandwiched between two anticyclones, Himamnor is expected to move slowly northwest and then north at a speed of 11 kilometers per hour.
Many forecasts predict that the storm’s line of sight will move north between Miyako Island and Ishigaki Island, but due to the positional relationship between the two high pressure systems, the typhoon’s induced air currents are weak and it is expected to move in a westward direction. . The CWB said it could not rule out that the extent of westward movement would determine the severity of Taiwan’s weather impact, which could trigger a landing warning.

The storm warning covered all coastal areas, all counties and cities except Taipei City, Nantou County and Chiayi City. Heavy rain warnings have been issued for mountainous areas in Taipei City, New Taipei City, Taoyuan City and Hsinchu County.
