center of tropical storm CHOI-WAN was located at 22.0 degrees north latitude and 121.3 degrees east longitude at 20:00 on June 4, 2021, which is about 40 kilometers northeast of Cape Eluanbi and it is veering north towards northeast at a speed of 37 kilometers per hour. Its central pressure is 1000 hPa and the maximum sustained wind speed near the center is 15 meters per second (equivalent to 54 kilometers per hour), which is equivalent to Grade 7 wind. The maximum instantaneous wind is 23 meters per second (equivalent to 83 kilometers per hour), which is equivalent to Grade 9 wind. The latest weather data indicates that Typhoon CHOI-WAN has weakened and turned into a tropical depression at 20:00 today (06/04). The center is currently on the east northeast seas of Cape Eluanbi, veering towards northeast and its threat on the Hengchun Peninsula, Pingtung and Taitung (including Orchid Island and Green Island) has been lifted.
The eastern seas and Bashi Channel are affected by the peripheral circulation of the tropical depression, thus the wind the wave in the region are still strong and the sailing and operating vessels still need to pay close attention; the wind level in Hengchun Peninsula and Orchid Island is as high as Grade 8 to 10, and strong wind can be seen in southwest region and open space areas along the coast of Kinmen and Matsu; high waves are expected to occur in the southwest region and east region (including Orchid Island and Green Island) and coastal areas of Hengchun Peninsula. Please pay extra caution to safety for any sea activities.
