Typhoon Talim is all set to batter the region of Taiwan soon. Not only this, warnings have been issued to both airlines as well as ships. Talim previously posed a threat to areas in the Taiwan region including Taipei, the national capital.
However, the typhoon has been changing its course and does not seem to be completely predictable in the moment. While the typhoon is likely to make a direct hit towards Taiwan, the storm’s movement has shifted further in a north and east direction. However, the alert issued have not been lowered yet due to the unpredictable movement of the storm.
The determination of schools or financial markets being closed on Thursday will only be made once the direction and the movement of the storm is quite clear.
Two of the largest carriers in Taiwan namely EVA airways and China Airlines, may cancel a few of their international flights in view of the typhoon.
