Typhoon Sinlaku has hit Taiwan.

Right across Taipei at 60 km/hr.   It is raining and strong winds. No flights have been cancelled so far.   Eitherwise Taiwan is well prepared for it.

Taiwan braces for Typhoon Sinlaku

TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Officials ordered schools and businesses closed Saturday and residents stocked up on food as powerful Typhoon Sinlaku churned toward northern Taiwan and the heavily populated capital Taipei.

Heavy rains and high winds were already pummeling the city. About 40 miles to the northeast, fishing boats and other craft headed for shelter as large waves pounded the coast near the port city of Yilan.

At 9:15 a.m. local time, Typhoon Sinlaku was centered about 74 miles northeast of Hualien in eastern Taiwan, packing sustained winds of 107 mph, the island’s Central Weather Bureau reported.

If Sinlaku stays on course, it is expected to make landfall in northern Taiwan on Sunday morning.

Typhoons frequently hit Taiwan between July and September, often causing casualties in mountainous regions prone to landslides and flash floods.
