Heavy rain alert issued in 15 counties, as Danas threatens Taiwan

Published on : Friday, July 19, 2019

Tropical Storm Danas has shifted its path east and no longer poses a direct threat to Taiwan, but a heavy rain alert has been issued for 15 counties and cities as its periphery lashes the country, while its evil “twin” lurks to the west of the Philippines, likely to bring rain tonight (July 18) and Friday (July 19).

 

The Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said Thursday that Tropical Storm Danas will move northward and gradually away from Taiwan, but it has issued a heavy rain alert for 15 counties and cities in Taiwan due to the effects of the storm’s periphery. Meanwhile, a low-pressure system on the west side of Luzon will gradually gain in intensity, likely bringing rain to southern and central Taiwan from tonight until Friday.

 

As of 8 a.m. Thursday, the CWB said that Tropical Storm Danas had a radius of 150 kms and was located 330 kms east-northeast of Taiwan’s southernmost tip of Eluanbi, and moving north at a speed of 27 kms per hour (kph). It was packing maximum sustained winds of 72 kph with gusts of up to 100 kph, the equivalent to level 10 on the Beaufort scale.

 

The CWB said that since Wednesday, there has been intermittent rainfall in northeastern and northern Taiwan due to the effects of the typhoon’s peripheral circulation, which will gradually expand this morning. In the afternoon, under the dual influence of the tropical storm’s periphery and thermal effect, eastern and southern Taiwan, as well as mountainous areas in central and northern Taiwan could experience localized heavy rain, especially areas south of Chiayi and Orchid Island.

 

In addition, the CWB pointed out that the low-pressure system on the west side of Luzon Island has intensified in strength, and will gradually approach the waters off of Taiwan. From this evening until Friday, Danas’ “twin” will likely bring rain to southern and central Taiwan, depending on its development and path.
