First Typhoon in Taiwan

Kalmaegi, the first Typhoon so far in Taiwan this year, just left the island. From a typhoon Category 2, he is now near the Chinese coast, and transformed itself into a tropical storm.

Even though it was a “small” typhoon, it brought incredible damages.

Wind was quite strong but rain was as hell.

A big part is totally flooded.

Images at TV are shocking: big trucks totally covered by water… flooding in Taichung city: it was the first time since 30 years!

The flow of water everywhere seems so powerful.

At posting time, 11 dead and 3 missing…

I never saw it here. Usually, damages are concentrated in the mountainous areas and some spots, well-known for this kind of risk (flooding).

But like that…

More to come later.
