Sinlaku: The Typhoon in Taiwan

Typhoon Sinlaku, which brought torrential rains to Taiwan from Friday, left four dead, seven missing and 17 injured, the Central Emergency Operation Center said. One man drowned and five were missing after Taichung County’s Houfeng Bridge collapsed on Sunday.

About 15,950 families were without electricity and agricultural damage was estimated at NT$330 million (US$10 million). Ilan County suffered the most damage at an estimated NT$140 million.

Now, the typhoon is away since this morning.

Some pictures to have an idea (thanks to Taiwan Times) even thought I could more describe the details, but they are to gory… so forget it):

All my thoughts go to the affected families.
