When to Announce If Business and School Is Closed Tomorrow

Based on weather forecast by Central Weather Bureau, the city government may declare business and/or school closing if a typhoon’s average wind force scale reaches 7 and above or its gust reaches 10 and above; or if cumulative rainfall within 24 hours reaches 350 mm in flat land of a city or 200 mm in the mountainous areas and a hazard has occurred or there is potential for a hazard to occur. With regard to school and/or business closing for the following day, the city government will make the announcement at 20:00 that night when the weather forecast data clearly indicate that wind force or rainfall has reached the standards for business or class closing; meanwhile, if the weather forecast data are not clear, the announcement shall be postponed until 22:30. The announcement made at either 20:00 or 22:30 shall be reviewed at 4:30 the next morning to see whether a change is needed.
