Vessels sailing and working in the sea warning areas, such as North Taiwan Sea, Northern Taiwan Strait, Northeast Taiwan, South East Taiwan, and Bashi Channel, shall strictly guard against the typhoon.

The wind and waves in the adjacent waters are obviously large, and there will be a chance of long waves. Please pay attention to your own safety when you are going to the beach. From today (29th) to October 2nd, the tide wil be high, and owing to the impact of Typhoon No. 18, flooding must be prevented in the center, north and northeasts of Taiwan, as well as the low-lying areas along the eastern coast.
