Taipei, Sept. 11 (CNA) Services to and from Green Island and Orchid Island have been suspended for Sept. 13-14, according to a notice posted on the EZ boat website late Sunday night.

According to the Central Weather Bureau, a sea warning for Talim is expected to be issued Tuesday morning with a land warning following later that day or Wednesday morning.

On Wednesday and Thursday, the tropical storm is forecast to have a major impact on Taiwan's weather, which is why ferry services have been suspended.
