Weather bureau issues heavy rain warning in most parts of Taiwan

Taipei, Aug. 27 (CNA) Most parts of Taiwan could see heavy rainfall Thursday due to an approaching low pressure system and moisture-bearing southwestern winds, the Central Weather Bureau said. Central and southern Taiwan could see downpours accumulating 130 mm in the next 24 hours, while rainfall during that period in northern Taiwan, mountainous areas in northeastern Taiwan and outlying county of Penghu might reach 50 mm, forecasters said. People in those areas should be on the alert against torrential rainfall, strong gusts and lightning, according to the bureau. Similar weather could last into next Monday, with rain more pronounced in central and southern Taiwan, it cautioned. (By Lee Hsin-Yin)
