Aftermath of the Jangmi Typhoon
Heritage has done an admirable job with the Jangmi Typhoon updates here.
The typhoon basically shutdown Taiwan as schools and businesses were closed throughout the island and with the typhoon now retreating, the locals are left with the aftermath.
The article below talks about the poweroutages with 40 electric poles being knocked down and a local chicken farmer losing around 7million NT(Taiwanese currency) over the weekend. 90 000 chickens are said to be dead due to drowning.
Below explains a community in Taipei evacuating due to mudslides and rocks flowing towards the residents. There were no immediate housing structure threats but as a precaution, 261 households are asked to leave the area.
The agricultural damages are estimated at 318,840,000NT with 2 deaths, 2 missing and 61 people injured. 218,856 are still without power with heavy rain throughout the island. There are still two systems outside of Taiwan with one causing a potential threat to the island in the future days to come. It still needs to be observed throughout the weekend, but I hope Taiwan does not have to face another typhoon anytime in the near future.
