AccuWeather Powerful Typhoon Soudelor will bring both flooding rainfall and damaging winds to Taiwan as the storm remains on a collision course with the island. By Eric Leister
'Even though Soudelor has weakened, it remains a powerful typhoon and
will restrengthen prior to making landfall as it moves back into an area
of very warm ocean waters with limited wind shear.
'"Residents of Taiwan should prepare for a direct strike by a
major typhoon. In fact, the typhoon could come close to regaining super
typhoon status before reaching the country Friday night," according to
Accuweather Meteorologist Dave Samuhel.
'Taiwan and the southern Ryukyu Islands will be the next
locations to contend with Soudelor. Impacts will begin on Friday across
the islands of Yaeyama and Miyako as the outer bands of the typhoon
bring gusty winds and periods of rain.'
