This year's No. 21 tropical storm has developed into a typhoon named Sarika at 9:00 p.m. Thursday, but the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) does not expect it to affect Taiwan as it was moving west through Luzon into the South China Sea.
The CWB said Typhoon Sarika, currently located 1,100 km southeast of Eluanbi, the southern tip of Taiwan, will not bring heavy rain to the island after interacting with the season's northeast winds.
However, the cloud systems on the outskirts of the typhoon could create precipitation in eastern Taiwan and showers in northern and southern parts of the island from Oct. 17-18.
