More wind and rain is expected in the week ahead, with Typhoon Halong lurking in the South Pacific, the Central Weather Bureau said yesterday. Typhoon Halong was located near Guam, some 2,500km from Taiwan, moving in a west-northwestern direction at a speed of 20kph as of yesterday morning. But bureau meteorologists said it was not clear whether Halong, a name originating from Vietnam, will pose any threat to Taiwan. Typhoon Nakri, which passed over Taiwan on Wednesday, continued to exert its influence on the island, bringing strong winds to Taiwan's northeastern waters and torrential rains to central and southern Taiwan.
