Heavy rain warning issued for Sunday afternoon

Taipei--The Central Weather Bureau on Sunday afternoon issued a heavy rain warning that covered almost all parts of Taiwan proper and Green Island and Orchid Island off the southeastern coast.

The regions covered in the warning could expect brief but heavy downpours especially in western, eastern, southeastern Taiwan and mountainous areas in northeastern Taiwan, where there might be thunder, strong gusts and swollen rivers, the bureau said.

The only parts of Taiwan not covered in the warning are the northern half of Yilan County and the offshore counties of Kinmen and Lienchiang (Matsu).
