At least 1000 passengers are trapped in Taipei due to Typhoon Ramasuun. On Wednesday night, rare and severe turbulant hit Taipei, causing airplanes cancelling departure or diverting.
An Air Macau A320 and EVA Airways (744) returned to Macau and Hong Kong after attempting to land twice. China Airlines from Bangkok diverted to Kaohsiung. Cathay Pacific flew back to Hong Kong around midnight after trying to land 3 times.
The severe turbulant occured around 1 to 2 knots at the head of the runway, wind gusts up to 25 to 35 knots. Severe turbulant was observed in the middle section of the runway.
Following flights has been postponed till further notice:
CX to HKG
CI to SYD, AMS, SFO, LAX
B7 to KHH, SQ to LAX (they learned their lesson)

I went on SIA's website and they said that SQ30 landed at 2200. Was this before or during the severe turbulance at CKS? I also noted that they are due to depart at 1430 Taipei time with a 1040 arrival at LAX on July 4.
