TAIPEI, Taiwan

— Taiwanese officials were concerned about the water supply in the wake of Typhoon Wipha, which ripped through Taiwan and headed out to southeastern last week.

Taiwan Water Corp. officials said water supply to Hsinchu City was suspended when the water purification plant temporarily shut down due to the debris in its water source, the Touchian River.
