The China Post - - LOCAL -

For­mer Ty­phoon Maysak was re­ported to have weak­ened into a trop­i­cal de­pres­sion as of 2 p.m. Sun­day and was lo­cated about 450 kilo­me­ters south of Olu­anpi, Tai­wan's south­ern­most tip, mov­ing north­west at 20 kph, ac­cord­ing to the Cen­tral Weather Bureau (CWB).

De­spite the down­grade,

the bureau still warned ves­sels in the Bashi Chan­nel and around the Pratas, Para­cel and Macclesfield Bank is­lands to re­main alert.

The storm's pe­riph­ery could still bring rain to Tai­wan and cen­tral and south­ern parts of the is­land could ex­pe­ri­ence showers, ac­cord­ing to the bureau.

Waves of 2 to 3 me­ters were fore­cast for all around the is­land and res­i­dents were ad­vised to be care­ful of their safety in coastal ar­eas, the bureau said.

Trop­i­cal Storm Haishen, the 5th named storm of the 2015, which is about 3,700 kilo­me­ters south-southeast of Tai­wan, will not im­pact the is­land in the short term, ac­cord­ing to the bureau.
