Meanwhile, local Taiwan officials are also warning residents and ships in the southern part of the island to prepare for the approaching tropical storms.
The Taiwan local Weather Department warns that tropical storm Lionrock is heading toward the Taiwan coast at a high speed. Although Lionrock is unlikely to make landfall there, ships are being asked to watch out for rough seas.
Residents in the south are also being urged to take precautions against heavy rain and landslides. Meanwhile, in Chia-Yi county, police have evacuated about one hundred people. Late Wednesday, Taiwan authorities warned that three storms might hit Taiwan, but the warning for Namtheum was cancelled after the storm weakened.
