Taipei, Sept. 4 (CNA) The Central Weather Bureau issued a heavy rain advisory late Sunday for six cities and counties in the northern and eastern parts of Taiwan.

The advisory covered New Taipei, Taipei, Keelung City, Yilan and Hualien counties, as well as Lanyu (Orchid Island) and Ludao (Green Island) off Taitung County.

Under the influence of an active cloud system, those places are likely to be hit by downpouring rains, the weather bureau said, reminding people there of precipitations, thunder-and-lightning and gust winds through Monday.
