The Meteorological Bureau advises the public to be cautious during heavy rain, strong winds and thunderstorms, and to stay out of low-lying areas prone to flooding.
Due to a long period of exposure to wind and rain, the soil water content is high recently, leading to a high risk of flooding and landslides, so people must exercise caution.
Residents should also pay attention to traffic safety during periods of low visibility and possible accidents caused by the collapse of work sheds, booths, outdoor billboards and trees.
