TAIPEI/BEIJING: Taiwan issued a maritime warning and airlines cancelled some flights as the island braced for Typhoon Talim, which was expected to hit cities including the capital Taipei, before hurtling towards China potentially as a super typhoon.

Talim was expected to gain in strength as it sweeps towards Taiwan’s northern cities, including New Taipei, lashing them with strong wind and heavy rain, the Central Weather Bureau said on Wednesday. Its greatest impact would be felt later on Wednesday and on Thursday when it was expected to slam into the north and northeast with maximum sustained wind speeds of 137 km per hour and gusts of up to 173 km per hour, according to the bureau’s website.
