High speed rail service along Taiwans western coast was suspended all day Tuesday. In China, the meteorological administration raised the level of its emergency response readiness and forecast Megi to make landfall on the coast of Fujian province Thursday morning. **** [Editors note: RMS, the Newark, Calif.-based catastrophe modeling company, said Megi is the third typhoon to hitTaiwan in the last two weeks, following Super Typhoon Meranti and Typhoon Malakas, which bypassed Taiwan to the southwest and northeast coasts of Taiwan, respectively, within three days of each other. Commenting on Taiwans exposure, RMS said, economic and insured losses from typhoons are typically low in Taiwan because typhoons tend to approach from the east side of the island where exposures are relatively low. In addition, insured building stock in Taiwan is typically designed to withstand typhoons gusts as well as water ingress, said the briefing, which was prepared byEmily Paterson, RMS senior manager for Event Response. Industrial clusters are mostly found on the western half of the island, although there are some near Hualien, which is forecast to receive hurricane force winds, the briefing said. Structures in industrial parks are constructed to withstand typhoon winds, and RMS field surveys indicate that industrial parks in Taiwan are generally sited on elevated ground while the buildings themselves have stepped entrances to minimize flood risk. China Exposure Megi is forecast to make landfall late today (Sept. 27) over Fujian Province in China, near the city of Quanzhou, which has a population of approximately 1.19 million.
