The China Post - - LOCAL -

The Cen­tral Weather Bureau on Satur­day is­sued heavy rain warn­ings to the greater Taipei area and moun­tain­ous re­gions in cen­tral and north­east­ern Tai­wan, cau­tion- ing against se­vere weather con­di­tions with pos­si­ble hail.

The Wen­shan Dis­trict in sub­ur­ban Taipei had ac­cu­mu­lated hourly pre­cip­i­ta­tion of 30 mm early Satur­day af­ter­noon, fore­cast­ers said, adding that the rain­clouds are mov­ing north­east­ward and could bring sim­i­lar weather to Xinyi, Song­shan, Nan­gang and Daan dis­tricts.

Res­i­dents should take pre­cau- tions against sud­den down­pours, light­ning, strong gusts and even hail, the bureau said.

Those in moun­tain­ous ar­eas should also pay at­ten­tion to pos­si­ble flood­ing, it said.
