Taiwan spared major damage as Typhoon Maria heads to China

5 15 12

TYPHOON Maria approached Taiwan Tuesday evening with heavy rain and winds into early Wednesday.

Schools and businesses were ordered to close early on Tuesday and some parts of Taiwan remained closed on Wednesday. The capital Taipei has returned to normal operations.

The eye of the typhoon remained offshore as the storm passed Taiwan, but tropical force winds extending more than 100 miles out from the center of the storm still put Taipei and surrounding municipalities within reach of heavy winds and rainfall.
