Update: You  might want to stock some water and food if you are in Taiwan especial in the north. It is super typhoon. Don't underestimate its strength. 

    These two pictures were taken in Penghu which is between Taiwan and China around 12 noon. The sea level is already rising. The high tide and the typhoon effects have already caused flood in a small village of  Penghu as the outskirt of the typhoon touched the east coast of Taiwan.

 It is 3 days Mid Autumn Festival holiday starting on Sept 26-28. Every one expects to have fun BBQ parties with friends and families. But things do not always go with plans especial the changes are effected by natural phenomenons. Unfortunately Typhoon Dujuan, the 7th typhoon that impacts Taiwan on this holiday since 2008, will be expected to effect Taiwan around the coming Monday of 28 and Tuesday of 29.      Also the high tide effects will be more enhanced because of the supermoon. The estimation of the high tide will reach 50-60 cm high. So if you are on the low ground areas or nearby rivers, you should be cautious for your safety and avoid visiting beaches. 
     Tawain Weather Bureau is expected to announce the land warning at 5:30 pm and issue heavy rain warning in Yilan County, Keelung City, Taipei, New Taipei City, Taoyuan City and Hsinchu County.

If you are in Taiwan, enjoy the festival spirits and stay safe.

Happy Mid Autumn Festival!
