Taiwan Expecting
227mph Winds From
Typhoon Longwang

TAIPEI - Taiwan was preparing on Saturday for powerful Typhoon Longwang which was forecast to hit the country on Sunday.
Packing sustained winds of up to 227km/h, Longwang is expected to bring strong gusts and torrential rains, which would affect the entire island, Central Weather Bureau forecaster Lin Hsiu-wen said.
"The edge of the typhoon circle has reached the sea off the eastern part of Taiwan and we expect the influence of Longwang will grow stronger by Sunday morning," she said.
Longwang was reported on Saturday to be moving at 20km/h in a north-westerly direction inland off the eastern county of Hualien.
