Taipei: Taiwan has issued a sea warning for Tropical Storm Meari and cautioned residents on the eastern and southern parts of the island to watch out for torrential rain.

Taiwan`s Central Weather Bureau says the storm was 340 miles (550 kilometres) south of Taiwan`s southern tip as of Friday morning, and was moving north at 15 miles (25 kilometres) per hour.

The bureau says ships off the island`s eastern and southern coasts should brace for the storm, and that heavy rain may hit eastern and southern Taiwan on Saturday.
It says the storm may gain strength as it moves past the East China Sea toward the Korean peninsula.
