China Airlines Ltd (中華航空), EVA Airways Corp (長榮航空), Mandarin Airlines (華信航空) and other global carriers announced that they would cancel some flights, particularly those to Japan's Naha Airport and New Ishigaki Airport in Okinawa.

"Typhoon Talim has been changing its course and is not entirely predictable", Taiwan's Premier William Lai said.

A sea warning for Typhoon Talim is expected to be lifted Thursday evening, after it moves toward Japan, according to the Central Weather Bureau (CWB). The rainfall is expected to worsen on Wednesday-Thursday night as Talim passes through the north of Taiwan.

The Rays (71-74) have lost four of five to fall four games behind the Twins in the chase for the second wild card. NY totaled five hits and walked six times with Todd Frazier smashing a three run bomb during a five run 4th.

It had not yet been determined whether the Taiwan government would close financial markets, companies or schools on Thursday. She goes on to predict that by the time Talim makes landfall, it would most likely have grown into a super typhoon (the highest level in China's rating system, equivalent to that of a Category 4 or 5 hurricane in the US).

China Airlines and EVA Airways, Taiwan's two largest carriers, said they would cancel some inbound and outbound global flights scheduled for later on Wednesday. The Central Weather Bureau has issued a warning for sea traffic.

Formosa Petrochemical Corp, Taiwan's second-biggest oil supplier, said it had prepared to close its supply port if necessary. But it has become much more aggressive about preparations since Morakot battered the island in 2009, killing around 700 people - majority in mudslides.

In mainland China, more than 200,000 people in Fujian and Zhejiang provinces have been evacuated, China's official Xinhua news agency said.

The railway bureau in Shanghai, north of Zhejiang, said it had stopped selling tickets for hundreds of trains. While typhoons have been a regular feature in Taiwan, the frequency and intensity have increased in the last few years, due to which the 23 million residents also take these alerts and evacuations more seriously.

The storm will then move north-west at a speed of 25kmh to 30kmh towards the coast of Zhejiang and Fujian, making landfall tomorrow or early on Friday, Reuters, citing China's National Meteorological Centre, reported.
