TAIPEI - The Central Weather Bureau (CWB) issued the sea warning on 2:30 p.m. Tuesday as Typhoon Talim approaches Taiwan.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Talim was 810 km east-southeast of Taiwan, moving 21km/h in a west-northwesterly direction, according to the CWB, which forecast the typhoon's speed to slow down to 18km/h. The typhoon packed maximum 162-km-per-hour gusts and sustained winds of 126 km/h. The CWB is expected to issue a land warning early Wednesday.

The outer edge of Talim was expected bring 64 to 87-km-per-hour winds to open coastal areas in northern, eastern Taiwan as well as in Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu starting Tuesday night.

While the CWB forecast Talim to veer further north away from Taiwan, the bureau reminded the public to stay vigilant as the storm maintains the strength of a moderate typhoon and could be upgraded to a severe typhoon by the time it approaches Taiwan.
