Light Intensity Shower Rain, 32°C

Today is Friday and we are going through a typhoon today, a super typhoon. So there’s a lot of wind, a lot of rain, a lot of leaves and the streets are very quiet.

Snippet from the local news report says:

“Super Typhoon Nepartak made landfall early Friday about 15 kilometers south of Taitung, Taiwan. Super typhoon Nepartak slammed into the east coast of Taiwan on Friday morning, overturning cars, forcing thousands from their homes and leaving a trail of destruction in its wake.

Taiwan’s first major tropical storm of the season made landfall at about 6am in the eastern county of Taitung with winds of 234km/h (145mph) lashing the region.”

At least one person was reported to have drowned on Thursday as rains hit the area before the typhoon’s arrival.

The storm system spans 200km (125 miles) and is moving north-west at a speed of 17km/h, towards China, where it is expected to make landfall on Saturday morning.

In the afternoon I walked around and took some quick photograph so some of the typhoon damage.
