The centre said that at 7am on September 10, the core of the tropical depression was positioned about 200 km southeast of Taiwan at 21.8 degrees north, 122.4 degrees east, with strongest winds reaching 40-50km per hour.

Over the next 24 hours, the tropical low pressure system will move west at a speed of 10-15km per hour and is likely to strengthen over warm waters.

At 7 am on September 11, the centre of the system will be located at 21.7 degrees north, 119.5 degrees east, about 140 km southwest of Taiwan, withwinds of 40-50km per hour.

Due to the impact of the tropical depression, there will be thundershowers and rough conditions in the East Sea area on September 11.

The system is expected to track west-southwest at a speed of 15-20 km and is likely to strengthen into a typhoon over the next 48 hours.

In addition, there is a super typhoon (international name Mangkhut) in the northwestern waters of the Pacific Ocean, which will track to the north of the East Sea over the next 4-5 days./.
